archive: Looking Back - 'Game Show'

Exhibitions


MASS MoCA 2001 USA

"The first major exhibition to explore how artists have adapted game structures and themes in their work."

The Game Show



"Game Show focussed on the proliferation of artists' "games" during the 1990s, concentrating on new media work and including pieces by Sophie Calle, Perry Hoberman, Natalie Bookchin, Christian Jankowski, Uri Tzaig, Danny O, Jodi, Lonnie Flickinger, Maciej Wisniewski, Thompson & Craighead, Christoph Draeger, and Chris Finley. MASS MoCA also commissioned a new work by Kay Rosen for the exhibition.

For the net art section of Game Show, MASS MoCA worked with rhizome.org founders Mark Tribe and Alex Galloway. Rhizome served as curators for this portion of Game Show, selecting the works to be shown and contributing an essay for the Game Show catalog as well as catalog entries on the individual works.

While the concepts of chance, rule systems, and play are at the heart of 20th-century philosophy and critical thought, the role of games in the visual and performing arts has been left virtually unexplored. MASS MoCA's Game Show brought together many of the diverse and innovative works that take the richness of games as their starting point. This timely exhibition revealed the broad appeal and pervasiveness of games, and looks at the special role that new media plays in recent game-based art."
