London Hosts its First Videogame Art Exhibition
London’s City Hall will play host to its first ever videogame art exhibition
Starting at midday on Monday 22nd October, London’s City Hall will be hosting an art exhibition focused on bringing the art of videogames to the public. This free exhibition will run until 6pm on Friday the 26th of October.
Organised by Ukie, as part of London’s yealry games festival, the exhibition will allow the public to get close to videogame art in a gallery style exhibition.
The pieces will be, for the most part, exclusive one-offs and the collection will be auctioned off at the end. Some of the contributors include London’s very own Rocksteady who have donated canvases based on their recent Batman games and Konami are putting in an appearance as part of the Metal Gear Solid 25th anniversary celebrations.
Again, the event is free to attend and will run most of next week, so there’s no excuse not to pop in if you’re in the area.
London Games Festival is held in association with Ukie and The Guardian and features a diverse range of events – from massive consumer exhibitions like Eurogamer Expo and MCM Expo, to careers’ fairs and educational summits, plus business to business conferences such as The Guardian Readers’ Research event, knowledge and networking seminars and BAFTA lectures in this sector – each celebrating interactive entertainment industry and culture.
