Who said play was just for kids?

Man at States of Play exhibition

Are you coming out to play?

Artists and makers from around the world have taken over our gallery, with an exhibition that proves play is for everyone – States of Play.

Curated by the Crafts CouncilStates of Play invites you to be playful with pieces of art. Get hands-on with objects and installations, from the fascinating to the bizarre; try your luck on a slot machine, create waves with your breath, or meet Combover Joe (the exhibition’s resident robot).

Artists including Richard Slee, Mischer’Traxler , Paul Granjon and Atelier NL have created a world of fascinating objects, like a lampshade that knits itself and an entire wall of pineapples (galvanized here in Hull) that cover the front of the gallery.

Don’t miss States of Play – on until 24 September.
