In the associate gallery, Playdate with Kidrobot, Kidrobot artists and NEXT Gallery artists will exhibit custom toys! Toys are a part of our culture in a way unlike ever before. Toys are no longer designated solely for children, they have become an important part of material culture and contemporary anthropology. Come see for yourself the infiltration of Toys into the art world!

“Toys include all the narrowly defined things that we associate with play–dolls, dominoes, blocks–but a toy is a culturally complex object that more broadly describes a host of things whose central purpose is to accommodate our imagination and creativity. A toy has no concrete strategic goal outside its capacity to accommodate our imagination: the most seductive and popular toys provide rich creative possibilities to ponder and imagine the most consequential dimensions of identity ranging from gender to class. What defines something as a toy is not its location in the store or its identification as a toy by its manufacturer: it is instead the creative possibilities people can envision within an object.” -Paul Mullins, Professor of Anthropology, Indiana University/Purdue University at Indianapolis
