As an adult, how often do we actually think of playing? What does it mean to play? Who has the ability to do so? For this exhibition, Melissa Sclafani and Ellie Richards examine the idea of play, but through very different lenses. Sclafani’s political sculptures use the aesthetics of the playground to examine systemic racial and economic inequalities in communal outdoor areas, while Richards’ readymades and assemblages seek to address the distinct psychological shifts between objects and behaviors associated with childhood memory, labor, and learning. This lighthearted exhibition with serious themes will inspire you to reconsider an element of our lives that we take for granted.

Exhibition Dates: April 3, 2021 - May 8, 2021
