15 October 2011 – 5 February 2012

A small display throughout the Museum which brought together the work of nine visual artists – Sonia Boyce, Sarah Cole, Angie Duignan, Richard Elliott, Rebecca Fortnum, Róisín Loughrey, Martin Newth, Ans Nys and Jessica Voorsanger – each of whom are fascinated by the child’s ability to play, pretend and live through their imagination.

Each inspired by a different aspect of the Museum’s collections, the works included paintings, drawings, photographs and video installations.
