Game Art in the Knowable Space

November 7

7pm

$10 General Ticket
$5 Artists and Students

RSVP

The aesthetics of video games are rerouted to create works of art, music, and cinema that subvert game mechanics and the experience of play. Game artist and machinima maker Chris Burke curates a showcase of artists who are using games beyond their intended purpose, as tools for making art. The exhibited works explore the finite, or “knowable,” potential of the programmed game environment.

With artwork from Alex Myers, Annie Ok, Jeff Donaldson, Rosa Menkman, Friedrich Kirschner, Victor Morales, Kent Sheely and Tom Murphy VII

Performances by Tamara Yadao, mrghosty (AKA Skot Deeming)
