A group exhibition exploring the relationship between art and games from a feminist perspective.
Game Face brings together a range of visual artists whose work explores the relationship between art and games. Each artist tackles the theme in an idiosyncratic way, examining aspects of games and play through technique, materials and subject.
Feminist themes form an integral part of the exhibition; works such as Alex Hovet’s subversion of sleazy computer game character ‘Leisure Suit Larry’ and Han Caroline’s exploration of the perceptions of gamer girls ask the viewer to consider gender roles in games production and consumption.
The exhibition will also include a selection of playable game art. A room full of art board games, shoot ‘em ups, remote control toys and building blocks will give visitors the opportunity to get involved and play along. Game Face will be an inclusive and fun art experience for visitors attending the show and our opening reception, that is set to be another awesome arty party following Sweet ‘Art tradition, including a selection of goodies and freebies from our sponsors!
Game Face was selected as part of Ugly Duck’s Real/Virtual season by Laurence Hill, Director of Brighton Digital Festival.
The exhibition will take place at the 47/49 Tanner Street Gallery on 1 and 2 July 2017, with the opening party taking place on Saturday 1 July 6-10pm.
