"Long before interactive meant sitting in front of a computer, artists were making books, toys, games, installations and other work that invited participation from the viewer." For this exhibition, curated by Karen Hanmer, Woman Made Gallery sought work that the viewer will handle, play with, modify, or physically interact with in some way.
