PlayTime is the first major thematic exhibition celebrating the role of play in contemporary art and culture. Forty works by twenty leading contemporary artists -- including large-scale installations, sculpture, photographs, video and tactile interactives -- examine how play catalyzes creative expression, enchants the ordinary, and helps us understand ourselves in new ways.
