Now, It’s Time to Play
This event has ended.
“Playing”– the theme of an exhibition scheduled for summer vacation time at MOT this year. “Stop playing! You need to～ !” we are told. Always, the need to “study” or “work” or “help out” interrupts our play time. Playing, it follows, is frivolous and counterproductive to a practical everyday living. But there is another side—playing, by helping us escape routine thinking, offers valuable chances to get new ideas and discover new values.
This exhibition features artworks fun for both children and adults created by six artists and artist-teams. Experiences of all kinds await you in the gallery: artworks you can touch and artworks you can participate in like playing a game. This being a contemporary art museum, however, there is more to it than simply mindless fun.
