Petty Crimes

Petty Crimes
Date: 21 July – 24 September 2000
Space: Temporary Exhibition (Gallery 3)

Exhibition of work, in a range of media (photography, painting, sculpture, video art), exploring the nature of child’s play.

In this exhibition children play out different roles and adopt many different masks, each mirroring the multiplicity and changing nature of the world around us. The artists selected share an interest in the complex relationship between adult and childhood behaviour. This relationship contains many contradictions and conflicts.

Artists: Mat Collishaw, Jeremy Dickinson, Rineke Dijkstra, Graham Fagen, Terry Hoff, Kenny Hunter, Sebastian Kusenberg, Jo Lansley, Helen Bendon, Robin Lowe, Maria Marshall, Wendy McMurdo, Susan Philipsz
