DESCRIPTION

Toys – how we relate to them and the memories and connections we make, both positive and negative, have played an immeasurable role in contemporary culture. Toys never completely lose their original purpose, but it is this familiarity of the toy that enlivens and enhances the dialogue between the artist and the viewer. We will present 30 innovative artists who work with toys in a range of media.
