Leap Then Look: Play Interact Explore

Wed – Sun, 10am – 6pm

Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art

Developed by Leap Then Look – artists Lucy Cran and Bill Leslie – in collaboration with community groups in Eastbourne and Brighton, everything in 'Play Interact Explore' is interactive. 

The exhibition explores play, collaboration and materials via large, tactile sculptural objects and colourful assemblages. Lively, exciting and curiosity-filled, Play Interact Explore is designed to support and encourage taking part in different ways to create sculptures, take photographs, move things around, rock, roll, stack and play.

The project brings together many of the ideas and approaches Leap Then Look has explored in recent years, developed through a process of collaborative workshops in community settings bringing materials together to play and reflect. The result is an exhibition where every part can be touched, picked up, rearranged and combined — a welcoming environment full of possibilities.
