TROVE call out for toys and short films based on toys
Exhibition dates 15th – 23rd June 2012

TROVE is an independent art space in Birmingham, UK, which run a
monthly changing programme of contemporary art exhibitions/events.
http://trove.org.uk

In June 2012 TROVE, with Antonio Roberts, are hosting an exhibition
about toys. This project leads on from the discovery that the
Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, where TROVE is based, used to produce
more ‘toys’ than jewellery, guns or pens; all things it is now more
famously known for producing. When researching what toys were
produced in this area of Birmingham it was discovered that the term
‘toys’ was used to describe items such as buttons, cuff-links and belt
buckles.

With the misinterpretation of the word ‘toys’ TROVE are looking for
films about actual toys, as is the current understanding of the word,
that have been altered, hacked, modified or electronically changed,
rather than ‘toys’ meaning belt buckles, buttons etc.
