Free Play

Free Play explores the work of artists who borrow from play and games to reveal social, philosophical, and cultural issues. From playfulness, to mathematical strategy, the artists have mined the significance of games, reinventing them to create experiences that often involve the viewer and reflect on the nature of participation in art.
