After months and months of hearing, waiting, and seeing pictures of the Design Exchange’s exhibit This is Not A Toy I was finally able to go. Curated by DX’s Sara Nickleson, John Wee Tom, and guest curated by Pharrell Williams, the exhibit was a look into a fun form of self-expression. The amount of artistry put into each ‘toy’, with the details going from minute to incredibly detailed was the best part about the entire thing. Each exhibit revealed a different artist and a different collection. It showed their inspiration and how art from around the world influenced their designs. I wanted this post to be really visual because the entire exhibit was incredible. So incredible, that I went around a few times just to really check the entire thing out. But anyway, without too many words and with too many images, I’d like to present to you, This Is Not A Toy.
