> DESCRIPTION

PLUSH

A playful journey through the world of soft sculpture and fabric media rooted in the history of toys. As popular culture and high arts culture coalesced in the 1960s dolls and fabric media became integrated into the fine arts movement, and recently we’ve seen a reemergence of craft in the world of fine arts. That very reemergence is a primary driving force in our curatorial practice which, combined with the whimsical nature of the work, is why we’ve chosen to highlight it here. The use of fabric dolls for children’s play dates back to the ancient Romans. Over time the idea of the children’s doll has become more complex, fulfilling a child’s need for self-expression through imaginary play. Join us as we explore that path through the lens of contemporary artists who are actively investigating the medium of plush and fabric. We exhibit their work in an immersive installation, transforming the gallery space into a plush environment and realizing the imaginary space that has for so long permeated the dreams of childhood.
