At Play in the Bracknell Gallery and Tall Hall.
Open Wed 7-9.30pm, Thu-Sat 1-9.30pm, Sun 1-5pm
The exhibition re-creates in both adults and children a sense of what it is like to be a child at play. It encourages the viewer to gaze, to remember, to touch, to explore, to trust, to think, to laugh, to peer, to concentrate, to join in, to bend down, to take a chance … and to play. At Play 1 features work by Marco Cali, Marcin Gajewski, Rosie Gibson, Judy Goldhill & Sophie Loss, Susan Eyre, Cathy Hart & Esther Jervis, Aaron Head, Pernille Holm-Mercer, Ingrid Jensen, Philip Lee, Siobhan McAuley, Samantha Mogelonsky, Fedor Pavlov-Andreevich, Kay Sentance, Liz Whiteman Smith, John Tenniel and Cally Trench. At Play is curated by Outi Remes and Cally Trench.
