At Play 3 (in 2011) explored ideas about making sense of the world and escaping from it, and both the pleasurable and the more sinister aspects of play. While children use play to make sense of the world, adults pften use play to escape from it. Both have pleasure ... but play can also have an obsessive, addictive, aggressive or divisive side.

At Play 3 took place at South Hill Park, Bracknell from 16 April to 19 June 2011.

The artists in At Play 3 were Rachael Allen, Carol Coates, Claire Deniau, Nisha Duggal, Alice Flight, Jane Glennie, Frances Greenough, Tom Hackett, Jenny Kiehn, Este Macleod, Tom Marshman, Beverley Matchette-Downes, Penny Matheson, Bithja Moor, Mary Oliver, Steve Perfect, Neil Raitt, Gary Scholes, Cally Trench, Liz West and Mandy Wilkinson.
