Vinyl art toy design exchange

Vinyl art (not toys!) storms the Design Exchange

This Is Not A Toy is a vinyl art exhibit curated by John Wee Tom of the Templar Hotel and Sara Nickleson of the Design Exchange with a little (ok, a lot) of help from rapper/super producer Pharrell Williams, who serves as guest curator. Featuring the work of vinyl art big-wigs like KAWS, Takashi Murakami, FriendsWithYou and Coarse, the pieces in the show range from a few bucks to millions of dollars. Alternately challenging, bewildering and fun, the exhibit gestures to the childhood fascination with toys while interrogating the degree to which these iconic objects function as cultural signifiers.
