Opening of the Video Game Art Museum (VGAM)
Selected work from the archive have been curated into the virtual space of the Video Game Art Museum. This show, Your Painting Is in Another Castle, includes work that references or mirrors the canon of art history. The opening occurs 4p-7p PST at manifesto-ish.com. The exhibition will remain up beyond the opening. Please check it out.
In order to create a sustainable model:
-VGAA will begin to accept submissions. Submitters will be credited. Successful submissions will follow the re-photography logic of the archive (straight-on, unobstructed shots of 2D work) The work in VGAA is resized to ~650 pixels on its greatest dimension. Please include the name of the game the work appears in.
-Posts will now include images from only one game, and vary in number of images (between 1-10). To increase the ease with which the archive can be searched, old posts will be broken into single game entries.
