Playing in or Out?

Cowboy and Girlfriend, 1960
An exhibition looking at the ways in which notions of play have changed over the past 50 years. Asking whether kids today are deprived of the outdoor adventures of previous generations, the show examines play through the experiences of different generations living in the East End. On show are films and photographs as well as documents relating to projects with local groups and work produced during artist-led workshops with local schools. Also on display are objects from the collection that represent the past half century of playtime.
