Let’s Go to a Place

An exhibition of contemporary children, caught between the imaginary digital landscape and the real world.

Let’s Go to a Place

About Let’s Go to a Place

Edinburgh-born artist Wendy McMurdo uses photography to observe and document the relationships between children and computers. Her portraits are of contemporary children, caught between the imaginary digital landscape and the real world.

Last summer, McMurdo documented a class of Edinburgh children in their final days of primary school. It was also the summer of Pokémon Go and she noticed how children ‘roamed the city, inhabiting two worlds at the same time - one geographic and one imaginary’.

This site-specific installation is a series of portraits presenting the multiple subjectivities of a generation of digital natives, to be discovered throughout the atmospheric galleries of the Museum of Childhood.

FREE, donations welcome
