Can’t Take My Eyes Off You

About Can’t Take My Eyes Off You

Not just a child’s toy, the doll has been part of civilization since as far back as 2000 BC.

Every civilisation has their own evolution and history of doll making. Materials such as corn, bone, clay, cotton, wood and much more have all been used to make dolls. In addition to toys, they’ve held strong function as fertility charms, company in the afterlife and as important symbols during religious ceremonies.

'can’t take my eyes off you' showcases dolls from as far afield as we could spread the word; Canada, Australia, Sweden to name a few. Over 50 artists in total, working in supported studios as well as artists working independently have been selected in this juried exhibition. When we announced the open call we couldn't have expected the vast amount of submissions we would receive. It has exceeded our expectations in every way. There’s a lot of love out there for the doll, and ‘can’t take my eyes off you’ has been curated to give the viewer as much to look at as possible!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Can’t Take My Eyes Off You are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
