Dear Crumb members,
I wanted to share with you un update on the current edition of Game on! El arte en juego which is taking place now in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The exhibition started in 2009 and is now celebrating its 5th international edition showcasing over 30 works from 14 different countries (machinima, artgames, experimental games, nongames, vr...) There is also programm of workshops, performances and talks on videogames, new media art and playful media.
The exhibit is still the only one in LatinAmerica focused on the experimental and artgame scene, aside from FILE or BIGFestival at Brazil. During this time it has gained recognition not only within the locals but also from colleagues running similar events around the world. I strongly believe in the importance of working on synergies among those who are interested in exploring the gamestudies field, specially with those interested in the LatinAmerica region since there is still no formal figure regarding that subject.
Here is the curatorial text for the current edition (English) http://bit.ly/2BUb9K1 and the link to the digital catalogue (Spanish)https://issuu.com/gameonelarteenjuego/docs/cat_gameon2017
I'm looking forward to continuing the conversation with those interested in the game curation scenary.
