Game Start | Organized by Kelsey Prud'homme
October 7–November 13, 2016
Opening reception: Friday, October 7 at 7 pm
Game Start brings a community of collaborators into the gallery with experimental games— creating connections between technical communities and visual arts practices in Edmonton. Prud’homme connected interdisciplinary teams to create an ambitious new set of installations using the game cabinet as a springboard for an experimental workshop process. The works by this Edmonton ad-hoc collective explore the act of participation within unusual stagings as a vehicle for disarming experiences and self-reflection.
