Abstract

Within the last 5 years, institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art and the Victoria & Albert Museum have sought to engage with game designers and developers in a bid to bring videogames into exhibition and gallery spaces. These initial examinations of games as artistic and cultural artefacts have reflected the growing interest in videogames by curators, academics, and the wider public. Player: Videogame Interaction from Atari to Toys to Life was an exhibition that aimed to contribute to this public discourse on videogames as cultural objects.
