‘The group exhibition Playground Structure takes its title from a photograph by Jeff Wall that depicts a climbing frame in a suburban park. The climbing frame is an invitation to play, and yet it also resembles an anonymous public artwork that might bring to mind a modernist grid or a constructivist sculpture. In the exhibition, Wall’s large-scale photograph will be exhibited with paintings from 1969 to the present day by Amy Feldman (image below, Public Lick, 2016), Mary Heilmann, Rachel Howard, Jeremy Moon, Ed Moses, Joan Snyder, Daniel Sturgis and Dan Walsh. The exhibition invites viewers to imagine each painting as a ‘playground structure’, reconceiving the grid as a space of freedom.’

Amy Feldman, Joan Snyder, Daniel Sturgis and Dan Walsh join Craig Burnett in a conversation about the exhibition.
