Arcade exhibition at Dowse Art Museum

Postby lizardb0y on Thu Sep 13, 2012 4:46 pm

The Dowse Art Museum in Lower Hutt will be hosting an exhibition about home-grown New Zealand video games later this year:

Arcade celebrates the extraordinary skills and creativity of the New Zealand gaming industry, focusing on the striking visual effects designed by our most talented and influential gaming artists. There'll be stunning digital art as well as still images, concept art, video footage and the actual games that you can play.

Opens 10th November and runs until 3rd March.

No, I've only just stumbled on to it while looking for something else. It looks to be mainly modern games.

Would anyone be interested in getting together and making an event of it? There's the Game Masters exhibition at Te Papa in December which had a lot of historic content.
