Recreation here is not a time of rest before going back to work, but a time of abandonment to creativity through play.
Since the 19th century, play has been a part of artistic methods and education.  Free play is a way of apprehending the world by manipulating the environment: construction games have become the emblem of this.  From being a teaching instrument, these are now viewed as educational or simply as a pastime, opening minds to abstraction and an infinite number of possible combinations beyond the traditional bourgeois styles and conventions of toys.  Implementing ideas of free play, combination and deviation, Récréation reveals the ways in which artists, designers, musicians and teachers play.  

Curators: Zsuzsanna Szabo and Jean-Marie Bolay

Opening 16 April 6pm
