LONDON.- Paradise Row, in collaboration with Prakke Contemporary, will present. Play, a group show in a large, pop-up gallery space in Mayfair, central London during October 2009.

Using the theories and investigations Johan Huizinga as a starting point, Play explores manifestations of play in contemporary art, from artists and works whose work is game-like in form or content, through to artists whose work is playful in a more direct sense.

In itself playful, the curation brings together both established art stars such as Jake & Dinos Chapman, with a new generation of breakthrough artists, including Gosha Ostretsov, Aaron Young, Shezad Dawood and Mounir Fatmi and historic works by Sol Le Witt and Marcel Duchamp in a cultural event that will amount to an evolving mini-arts festival, comprising of an exhibition, performances, talks and events, themed on the subject of culture as play.

The full list of artists is the following:
Johanna Billing, Justin Coombes, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Shezad Dawood, Edward Fornieles, Margarita Gluzberg, Nicholas Hatfull, Jeppe Heine, Carsten Holler, Evan Holloway, Sol Lewitt, Ross McNicol, Gosha Ostretsov, Guillaume Paris, Fedor Pavlov-Andreevich, Barry Reigate, Gary Webb, Ulrik Weck, Douglas White, Conrad Shawcross, Tim White Sobieski, Aaron Young. Todd de Luca.

The Kinder Bar is an installation by Edward Fornieles with a program of events generated/arbitrated by The Wallis Gallery aka Vanessa Carlos, Ross McNicol and Co., including the art/music event 'Toll for The Brave' organized by Amelia Whitelaw and a Katie Guggenheim evening.

Performances by Zayne Armstrong, Awst & Walther, Sarah Elliot, Eloise Fornieles & Kate Hawkins, Ian Giles, Kirstie Macleod, Harry Meadows, Steven Ounanian, Olympia Scarry, Amelia Whitelaw, and more.
