'This Is Not a Toy' Explores Vinyl Figures as Art

THIS IS NOT A TOY: An Exploration of Urban Vinyl as Design and Art Form
Pharrell Williams Guest Curates First Large-Scale Designer Toy Exhibition 
at the Design Exchange

On February 7th, 2014, Canada's Design Museum, the Design Exchange (DX) launches the world's first ever large-scale exhibition dedicated to urban vinyl as contemporary art. On display until May 18th 2014, visitors dive headfirst into the realm of designer "toys" as the Exhibition Hall is transformed into a life-size dream world, filled with figurines ranging from tiny trinkets to enormous free-standing pieces. World-renowned international works, including some from the collaborations and personal collection of singer, songwriter and producer Pharrell Williams, beg for examination and exploration.
"Pharrell personifies this century's renaissance man. His influence on music, fashion, design and contemporary art is profound. From penning and performing 2013's hottest songs to the furniture he designed for Emmanuel Perrotin Gallery, to his BBC/Ice Cream streetwear, he is truly ubiquitous. But it was his amorous relationship with urban vinyl and contemporary art that precipitated this collaboration with the DX... I am thrilled to host another first for the Design Exchange, Canada's Design Museum." - Shauna Levy, President of the DX

This Is Not A Toy takes its name from the disclaimer found on packaging for objects geared to adults or which might be harmful to young children - they may be called toys, but they are not intended for play. With roots in late 1980s graffiti culture, the subversive and cult-like art form of urban vinyl is as rebellious as it is fun. Lying at the intersection of fine art, marketing, pop culture, product and graphic design, toys are highly collectible objects for a post-Pop world, often selling from hundreds to tens of thousands of dollars.

PLAY & EXPERIENCE
This Is Not A Toy, conceived and co-curated by John Wee Tom, co-founder of the Templar Hotel, with DX Associate Curator, Sara Nickleson and American music and fashion icon, Pharrell Williams, features works that demonstrate conceptual sophistication, rigour and execution.
 
L to R: Sushi & Octo by Huck Gee; False Friends by Coarse; Superflat Museum by Takashi Murakami; Passage by Coarse

Urban vinyl in numbers:
  • 1,000 - the original release price, in dollars, of Yoshitomo Nara's Sleepless Nights Sitting in 2007
  • 50,000 - the Buy It Now price, in dollars, on eBay for Yoshitomo Nara's Sleepless Nights Sitting
  • 26,000 - the number of diamonds and gems that cover seven white, yellow and rose forms of Pharrell's everyday essentials, as part of The Simple Things: the six foot sculpture created by Takashi Murakami, Pharrell Williams and Jacob the Jeweler in 2009
  • 1998 - generally recognized as year zero of the urban vinyl scene
  • 500 - the number of three inch production Kidrobot Dunnys - every single edition produced - that will be assembled behind a glassed-in display wall for This Is Not A Toy
  • 13 - the number of designer toys acquired in 2008 by the Museum of Modern Art for their permanent collection
  • 8 - the height in feet of a monumental AD-AT sculpture to be unveiled by Bill McMullen, commemorating the 10th anniversary of the original release of his Star Wars AD-AT Walker X Adidas Shelltoe shoe mash-up toy
  • 3 - the number of larger-than-life plush pieces from DOMA that will be at the DX, including Master Control (left - a gang of four giant creatures); Stupid Tank (middle - a stuffed tank with a long cannon that can be tied in knots and wrapped around fixtures, people, architecture and columns); and Carne (right - a butcher shop-style display of hanging stuffed toy meat cuts)

    

"These are toys in name only. They play with perceptions, imagination and expectations of what a toy is. They lure you in with their design and personality, touching on a memory from your childhood or some other intuitive emotion while revealing - or concealing - their true nature. You don't need an art history degree or design background to appreciate these small sculptures - everyone 'gets' them because of their accessible aesthetic qualities. But unlike ordinary toys, they also have something for the sophisticated designer or art critic because of their underlying, subliminal messages. They're just cool - for kids, adults, jaded teens, hipsters, grandparents, fashionistas, musicians, designers, artists and culture hounds alike." - John Wee Tom, Exhibition Initiator and Co-Curator

Video screens and projections will accompany the displays, showcasing the development of the movement by comparing contemporary works. Expect interviews with designers along with related fashion and music content that complement the culture.

ARTISTS & DESIGNERS 
With popularity beginning in Japan and Hong Kong, the movement has travelled west and this medium of creative expression has attracted prominent artists from around the world. The designs created within this realm range dramatically, from representations of renowned fashion designers like Vivienne Westwood to (pop-culture icons from Star Wars to the work of artists from all disciplines and backgrounds).

International heavyweights inject the show with iconic characters and highly charged pieces. Works by New York-based graffiti-turned-painting-and-sculpture artist Brian Donnelly, known as KAWS, (provide the axis for critical discourse on the accessibility of art, art as consumer product and the positioning of so-called lowbrow art within the contemporary art context). FriendsWithYou, a fine art collaborative of Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, aim to spread the positive message of Magic, Luck, and Friendship™ through colourful paintings, sculpture, large-scale experiential installations, public playgrounds, and more.

Additional artists on display include: 
Takashi MurakamiYoshitomo NaraDOMAMisaki Kawai, Bill McMullenFrank KozikCoarseHuck Gee, and other influential toy artists, plus producers Kidrobot and Medicom.
The Canadian component includes custom toys by: 

"Increasingly, contemporary artists are creating products without compromising their vision or body of work. The toy may come first but it doesn't take long before fans are attending gallery openings of new sculpture and painting. These small objects welcome people into an art world that they once felt had no place for them." - Sara Nickelson, DX Associate Curator
 
COLLECTORS
Designer toys are made in limited editions, the best often scooped up by collectors at record prices. This Is Not A Toy aims to highlight these coveted pieces, otherwise only viewable in private homes by friends and family. Contributors include Pharrell Williams with his The Simple Things, Canadian fashion icon Jeanne Beker, owner of Toronto's 'Lost and Found' Jonathan Elias, Nicolas Caldas from Puerto Rico, and co-curator, John Wee Tom aka Johnnyvinyl

  
KICKSTARTER
With a goal of raising $75,000 from November 26th to December 26th, 2013, this is the first time that a crowd-funding platform has been used to raise funds for an exhibition of this scale by a public institution in Canada. The Kickstarter platform was chosen because of its metrics and demographics: its audience comprises the very same tech-savvy, social-media hungry, pop-culture vulture audience with a taste for the new that are typically fans and collectors of urban vinyl. 
A giant glass structure will be designed to house more than 100 blank Kidrobot Munnys, each toy representing one person who has donated to the exhibition's Kickstarter campaign at the $500 and $1,000 tiers. Over the run of the four month exhibition, visitors will have a turn to shoot a paint ball gun at the group, creating a continuously-changing design. At the end of the exhibition, each unique figure will be sent to their respective donor - the Kickstarter reward created for supporters of the exhibition BY visitors of the exhibition along with curators Sara Nickleson and John Wee Tom with interactivity artists Eliot Callahan and Andrew Lovett-Barron.

At the next donation tier ($1,500), a component of the rewards package includes one of 10 custom 18" Munny designs, created by Canada's top designers and architects, as listed above. The first person to donate at this level will receive the first pick of the custom Munnys to take home, with the other nine donors following suit. 

DESIGN EXCHANGE (DX): EXPERIENCE DESIGN AT CANADA'S DESIGN MUSEUM
Established in 1994, the Design Exchange (DX) is Canada's only museum dedicated exclusively to the pursuit of design excellence and preservation of design heritage. At a crossroads of multiple disciplines, from furniture and architecture to graphics and fashion, DX exhibitions and talks are curated to reflect the popular zeitgeist and contemporary culture, while demonstrating the relevancy and importance of design to everyday life. Under the leadership of President, Shauna Levy, and a renewed strategic vision beginning March 2012, the DX has hosted renowned traveling exhibitions from prestigious cultural institutions across the globe, including Stefan Sagmeister's The Happy Show from the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia and the Christian Louboutin retrospective from Design Museum London. Educating and awareness-building from its downtown Toronto location in the historic and original Toronto Stock Exchange building, the non-profit charity attracts thousands of visitors of all ages each year.

Doll Collecting 101: What are Betsy McCall dolls?

McCall's magazine had a noteworthy and long run from the late 1800s until personality Rosie O'Donnell became editorial director, renamed the magazine after herself and ceased publication in 2002 when she couldn't totally remake the magazine in her own image. But prior to the magazine's ruin, it had became one of the most popular magazines in the world by the 1960s. One of the most beloved aspects of McCall's magazine was Betsy McCall, a paper doll that first appeared in the magazine in May of 1951.

Invasion of the (doll) body snatchers starring Liv, Jackie Evancho & Moxie Teenz - Doll Collecting Examiner


Body swapping Liv and Jackie Evancho dolls

I am a big fan of both Liv dolls and Moxie Teenz dolls, so I am now making hybrid "Moxie Liv" dolls. Here's the scoop!

Recently, as I reported in "Jackie Evancho: the little doll with the big voice," the 14" fashion dolls went on clearance at Toys R Us. These dolls look a lot like the Moxie Teenz dolls in the body. In fact, the Evancho dolls and the Moxie Teenz dolls can exchange clothes, accessories, even shoes. However, the cute, smiling face of little Jackie Evancho just does not display well with the more sophisticated Moxie Teenz dolls.

In the face, the Liv dolls are similar to the Mozie Teenz dolls. The heads are close enough in size to where the Liv World dolls and the Moxie Teenz dolls can exchange wigs. The Liv dolls also feature inset glass eyes like the Moxie Teenz. However, Liv dolls are about 2 inches shorter with smaller torso dimensions. Until now...

Taking the clearance Jackie Evancho doll and using the boiling water technique to loosen the vinyl around the neck, I removed her head and did the same with a Liv doll. Quickly swapping heads while the plastic was still soft, I created a Liv-Evancho hybrid I call my "Moxie Liv." The proportions were excellent, and I prefer the Evancho head on a Liv body.

Moxie Liv on left with Moxie Teenz Leigh and Gavin
 The Liv eyes are a little smaller than the Moxie Teenz eyes and without their long, rooted lashes. I didn't take the time to root lashes on the Liv doll, but I painted on more liner and eyelashes to make the Liv eyes appear larger and pop like the Moxie Teenz dolls do. I changed the Liv wig out and was very happy with my new "Moxie Liv" doll which displays very well with the Moxie Teenz.

Although the Liv dolls were discontinued, they are easy to find at yard sales and thrift stores for 99¢ and under. If you like the Moxie Teenz dolls but don't want to pay the inflated prices charged by scalpers on Amazon and eBay, make your own Moxie Liv doll with a Liv head and the Jackie Evancho doll body!

Laiko Real Teen Dolls a little-known 1990s fashion doll - Doll Collecting Examiner


Laiko Real Teen Dolls a little-known 1990s fashion doll

Laiko International Co., Inc. was based in City of Industry, CA when it made its line of "Real Teen" fashion dolls in the 1990s. At the time, the website for the Laiko dolls was realteen-dolls.com. The website described their 14-inch Limited Edition Teen Doll as "young, pretty and...always dressed trendy (with) beautiful, long and silky hair."

The dolls came with different hair color, fashions and face paint, and some I have seen had stars painted in their eyes. They had big eyes, big grins and dimples. Fashions included plenty of shorts sets as well as some dresses with socks and boots for footwear. The Laiko dolls are a little over 14 inches tall and stamped on the back of the torso and back of the head with 1993 Laiko International Co., Inc China.
