The resulting pieces, installed as stand-alone displays and interventions across the Museum, span a variety of approaches, processes and media.A Pollock’s Gallimaufry will be a month long event showing works by contemporary artists working in a variety of crafts and media inspired by the unique, mostly Victorian, collection at the two historic buildings on the corner of Scala Street and Whitfield Street.Jack Fawdry, whose great grandmother founded the museum, is curating the exhibition and has gathered the artists together to produce the works.“It’s quite exciting because the toy theatre has had a turbulent past and it almost disappeared completely,” says Fawdry who is an accomplished artist and printmaker.“Mr Pollock was the last great publisher of toy theatres, then he went out of business. After the Second World War Britain started to modernise and change and its Victorian past was slightly left behind.“So that’s when Marguerite, my great grandma, comes in and starts the museum in homage to toy theatres,” he says.- From�Museum is keeping the drama of toy theatre alive with a new�exhibition View this post on InstagramPheew!
