As a participatory exhibition, it encourages viewers to gaze, remember, touch, explore, trust, think, laugh, peer, concentrate, join in, bend down, take a chance... and play. It explores the way that play can be free and spontaneous or bound by rules and conventions -- as with board games and sport. The exhibition considers ideas about rules or the lack of them, and the spirit of the Olympics in the year that the summer Olympics come to Britain. At Play also supports artists in making participatory, engaging and interactive work in a variety of art forms.
At Play 2012 is a project in partnership with the New Ashgate Gallery, Surrey, South Hill Park, Berkshire, and OVADA, Oxfordshire, exploring concepts of play and participation. At Play is a collaboration, produced and curated by Dr Outi Remes and Cally Trench.
At Play 2012 is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and by the Foundation for Contemporary Art, New York, and Farnham Town Council.
