Joy Sticks

11 May @ 11:00 am - 27 August @ 4:00 pm


Free fun in Brum!

Joy Sticks is a family friendly, sport and games inspired exhibition where visitors play to win games. The main gallery space hosts Tie Your Laces by Scottish duo We Throw Switches. This compulsive game is a test of speed and agility designed to bring people together through friendly competition.

The Joy Sticks exhibition also features This is not a table* by Birmingham-born, Belfast-based artist Robin Price. Visitors are invited to play a game of ping pong like you’ve never played before. Programmed with 4000 LED lights and sounds, every bounce of the ball triggers a cascade of colour and sensory joy.

*Visitors have renamed this ‘Disco Ping Pong’, you’ll find out why when you come and see us!
