Profile

Art ain’t what it used to be, nor is philistinism, and few exhibitions typify the promiscuous shift more than this celebration of video games and the art they inspire. Classic arcade games from the eighties are paired with those for the current home systems, and whether you’re more interested in art-cultural theories informed by Tron and the Warriors or just the images and objects themselves, the show has you covered. From the jerky to the seamless, the brute to the carefully choreographed, it charts a kind of evolutionary line as life and technology have grown increasingly intertwined.
