Playtime | Institute of Modern Art (IMA)
Many of our ideas about art stem from the notion of innocent, childish creativity. Playtime, however, is not so innocent. Watch as Brisbane artist Jenny Watson's childish paintings are brought to life through transgressive performance. If that doesn't excite you, maybe a rubber glove puppet show will?
