Open World: Video Games & Contemporary Art


Video games are rarely examined as a major influence on contemporary art. "Open World" draws attention to this phenomenon through the presentation of artworks including painting, sculpture, textiles, prints, drawings, animation, video games, video game modifications and game-based performances and interventions by makers who self-identify as artists. The artworks reference a broad cross-section of games, ranging from early text adventure and arcade games to modern massive multiplayer online role-playing games.
