Hopscotch, layered with meaning, is imbued with physicality, psychology, entertainment, and challenge. This multimedia exhibition marks the grid in a child’s game of hopscotch as a starting point. It quickly diverges into various topics, including play, gender, mathematics, philosophy, literature, and art history. Extending across cultures, continents, and time, hopscotch imagery was discovered on painted grey ware in Ancient India. Also, it has been reported to have been used as endurance training for soldiers in the Roman Empire. The exhibition plays hopscotch by evoking movement and conveying a sense of passing through geographical areas or fields of endeavor.
