ArtPlay is an interactive, creative gallery space, designed for joyful exploration of art and art making. ArtPlay provides a kinesthetic, multisensory environment for visitors to the Queen Victoria Art Gallery. It features cutting edge new arts technology (such as the Kinect Wall and a Persistence of Vision machine) as well as traditional art making technology (such as Camera Obscura). All are presented in an an accessible and fun way. It is a hands on experience, contrasting with the mostly “don’t touch” culture of a traditional gallery. The exhibition encourages interaction and play a dynamic engagement with art and art making, and harnesses the potential artist is us all, adult and child alike.

ArtPlay has been created in collaboration with local artists and innovators.
