LOOK, LOOK, LOOK…A PLAYFUL BOOK
July 11 – September 22, 2018
Organized by Elisabeth Lortic, independent curator and co-founder of Les Trois Ourses (Paris)
This exhibition brings to the forefront ideas and concepts articulated by the early 20th century Futurist-informed artist Bruno Munari. It is a thoughtful and dynamic exploration of play, invention, movement, and color. It brings together a body of artworks which are child friendly, and, more importantly vehicles to engage children in creative learning process. Like children, artists explore alternate materials, and take them to the limit of their possibilities.
