It's game on at Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center.
The nonprofit multidisciplinary arts space is hoping to unlock all sorts of achievements with the cross-platform exhibition “Open World: Video Games & Contemporary Art." Organized by the the Akron Art Museum in Ohio, the multi-player show is leveling up beyond the notion that video games are an art form.
"This exhibition takes that as established fact and explores the intersection of video game technology, design, techniques and tools and contemporary artists. So, the works in this exhibition are either mining the tools of video game design and production, they are riffing on images and iconography from established video games ... or they're critiquing and commenting on the culture of video game play," said Oklahoma Contemporary Artistic Director Jeremiah Matthew Davis.
