作為新竹市美術館2017年度主題展的首展,嘗試探求傳統民間文化與當代藝術的接合點,於是以「玩具」、「遊戲」、「當代藝術」作為整體策劃之切入核心,自台灣玩具發展歷史脈絡分析,延展至當代藝術、跨界潮流文化之思辨。一方面提供對台灣玩具文化知識的學習和體驗,一方面提高社會大眾、親子團體對當代藝術的認識和喜歡,以期達到寓教於樂的美意。

《好玩藝兒─玩具‧遊戲‧當代藝術展》三大展區分別呈現玩具發展的歷史脈絡、親子互動的遊戲體驗,並邀請以玩具為創作跨界思考的當代藝術家,包括李明道(AKIBO)、不二良、王建揚、陳傑強、大黑白(陳冠州)、魏子喻等六位藝術家參展,讓大小朋友一起進入當代藝術家的玩具創作夢。親子觀眾和一般民眾皆可以分別從玩具、遊戲、當代藝術所展現出玩具之於視覺、觸覺與心靈上的能量,引發對玩具與童年的深層感受。

【玩具面面觀─台灣玩具發展史】與台灣玩具博物館攜手合作,規劃展出台灣玩具四大時期:明清早期童玩、日據時代、戰後四0至六0年代,以及玩具王國七0至八0年代。藉由四個時代的玩具演進以及發展,讓參觀者重新發現台灣玩具不同的價值,以及背後所蘊含的庶民文化童趣智慧。又因玩具在人們手中才有生命力,因此在【原來可以這樣玩─親子玩具遊戲區】規劃成為親子遊戲互動區,依照童玩的結構、機構、造型等功能,提供可以動手操作的玩具給大小朋友玩,一邊遊戲、一邊學習。

「玩具」更常是當代藝術家創作中重要的元素,藝術家懷著赤子之心,將童年追憶融入個人的創作語彙,並結合天馬行空的想像,創造出玩具的奇幻世界。【藝術家的玩具夢─當代藝術創作展】參展的藝術家中,李明道(AKIBO)以多媒體科技與互動裝置打造的機器人家族,極具魅力與個人風格;不二良所創造的「小鼠」有著可愛外貌,如朋友般的親切感吸引各年齡層民眾的注意;而曾於新竹就學、以樂高積木作品受到矚目的大黑白(陳冠州),將來自西方的玩具表現出台灣在地的建築特色與文化精神;王建揚使用鮮豔的色彩、大量的玩具以及漫畫卡通等元素,創造出腦海中的夢幻場景;陳傑強以狂野的筆觸畫出童年時期回憶,藉由創作來塑造自己的記憶;魏子喻藉由描繪當代動漫文化傳達大眾盲目追求流行風潮的行為,引領觀者探索隱藏於潮流裡的真實。
As the first exhibition of annual theme exhibitions in 2017 of Hsinchu Art Museum, “Play Well─Toys•Play•Contemporary Art Show”tries to explore the junction of traditional folk culture and contemporary art. Therefore, the exhibition takes “Toy”, “Play” and “Contemporary Art” as the main planning-core. The exhibition starts from the history analysis of Taiwan’s toy development, and extends to the speculation of contemporary art and cross-border trend culture. On the one hand, it provides the learning and experience about the knowledge of Taiwan’s toy culture. On the other hand, it improves publics and parent-child groups’ awareness and love of contemporary art, and to achieve the good intention to learn while entertaining.

The three main sections of “Play Well ─ Toys • Play • Contemporary Art Show” are showing the history of toy development and providing the experience of parent-child game respectively, there were six contemporary artists who created the theme of toys invited, including AKIBO, No2Good, WANG Chien Yang, TAN Kent Keong, Great B.W. and WEI Tzu Yu. The visitors’ deep feelings of toys and childhood would be triggered by vision, sense of touch and spirit from toys, play and contemporary art simultaneously.

The section of〈Aspects of Toys─The history of toy development in Taiwan〉is cooperated with the Taiwan Toy Museum, and it will show four periods of Taiwan's toy history: Ming Qing Dynasty, Japanese-occupied period, postwar period (1940-1960) and the heyday (1970-1980) . By four periods of toy development, visitors can recover the different value of Taiwan’s toy and wisdom of popular culture hidden in the toy. Additionally, toy change into vitality in people’s hands, so the section of〈How fun like this─Parenting Toy and Play Area〉is planned as a parent-child interactive area. We provide different structure and modeling of hands-on toys for adults and kids to play, and make people learn while playing.

Besides, "Toy" is an important element in the creation of contemporary artists. The artists combine their childhood memories with the creative vocabulary and the imagination, and create the fantasy world of toys.
