In recent years, artists have expressed a burgeoning interest in exploring childhood in order to uncover memories and delve into past psychological issues. Some of the artists In this exhibition have employed and transformed popular graphic images from the ‘40s and ‘50s found in vintage coloring books, paper doll books, puzzles and games. Others have invented symbolic figures to represent narratives from their past, as amulets of protection, or as expressions of the disturbed innocence of our time.
