Unique amalgamation of games and art
A collateral event of India Art Fair 2016, ‘Level 01’-an exhibition of art games, will be held on January 27-February 20.
The current exhibition seeks to enhance the gaming experience within the structural framework of visual arts. Participating artists are Akshay Raj Singh Rathore, Gayatri Kodikal, Krishnarjun Bhattacharya, Mario D’Souza and Sanket Jadia, Studio Oleomingus, Thukral and Tagra and Vinit Nikumbh.
These experimental art games have been made by Indian artists from diverse backgrounds - architecture, visual arts, literature, film-making and game development - taking part in the global conversation on independent game development and Art Games.
Promona Sengupta, curator, Khoj said: “The objective of the exhibition is to not only showcase the high quality of work in the field of art games happening within India, but also to highlight the ways in which games are playing an important part in creating critical conversations on difficult socio-political topics in a light and playful manner.”
‘Level 01’ promises to be a unique experience for diverse audiences, as it is a completely new way of looking at exhibition spaces and what is exhibited inside.
