IC Honors FYI: Handwerker Gallery – Free Play

FREE PLAY

Curated by Melissa E. Feldman

October 1-November 7, 2015

FREE PLAY brings together an international array of artists who produce works modeled on games and play.  Whether derived from the playground, the video arcade, the casino, or the rec room, each artist in the exhibition reinvents a playable “game” that reveals social, philosophical, and cultural issues.  From re-enacting territorial disputes to the use of mathematical strategy, the artists in FREE PLAY create experiences for visitors that raise political awareness.

Featuring work by Cory Arcangel, Patrick Bernier & Olive Martin, Ruth Catlow, Mary Flanagan, Futurefarmers, Ryan Gander, Jeanne van Heeswijk & Rolf Engelen, Allan McCollum & Matt Mullican, Paul Noble, Pedro Reyes, Jason Rohrer, David Shrigley, Erik Svedäng, and Yoko Ono.
