Modernist toy exhibition - PLAY:TOYS, SETS, RULES
Play: Toys, Sets, Rules is an exhibition of toys drawn from the personal archives of their designers, Roger Limbrick, Patrick Rylands, Fredun Shapur and Ken Garland, a loosely associated group that emerged in London in the 1960s.
A further number of continental designs from the same period have been lent to the exhibition from the collection of Marion Hine, also a contributing designer. Although many of these designers have been published and exhibited individually, this exhibition is the first time their works have been united as a group. Play offers a unique survey of late modernist approaches to child development and design and, as such, a variety of ways in which we might think of both play and design as formative and speculative activities.
