Play: Toys reimagined as art highlights artists who use toy-like materials to create magically transformative installations, videos and sculptures for “the kid in all of us.”
The exhibition features site-specific works by six artists working in diverse media from crayons to building blocks and inflatables. With its highly interactive and engaging artworks, Play focuses on the similarities between how children and adults experience various playful habits of invention, such as curiosity, imagination, and problem solving.
From playfulness to mathematical strategy, the artists in Play create experiences that invite the viewer to interact, enjoy and reflect on the nature of wonder and delight in art.
