Mark Neville – Child’s Play, The Foundling Museum, 40 Brunswick Square, London WC1, until 30th April 2017
We should consider ourselves fortunate that the artist Mark Neville often focuses on social issues in his projects and this exhibition, appropriately held at The Foundling Museum, is an important one.
Child’s Play combines Mark Neville’s photographs with a book and on March 20th a symposium looking at play in our cities today.
The photographs look at children at play in this country from Port Glasgow to London, Pittsburgh, Canada, the Ukraine, Afghanistan and Kenya. While the images capture children in the act of playing whatever the circumstances of where they live they serve as reminder and inspiration for all of us to get involved to make sure that children’s universal right to play as recognised by the UN is not allowed to vanish and be ignored. They are our future and we owe it to them.
Open: Tuesday – Saturday 10:00 – 17:00, Sunday 11:00 – 17:00, Monday closed
