1  General / Wanted! / Learn to Play: Open Call on: August 15, 2010, 09:15:47 AM
Hello all,

Learn To Play is an exhibition of artful games that will be at the Euphrat Museum of Art in Cupertino. We are asking for your games! Get your work featured alongside Brenda Brathwaite, Catherine Herdlick, Jason Rohrer, and Adam Saltsman (aka Adam Atomic)! I know this forum is for art that is ~not~ games, but I think some of you would be interested either in submitting games that you've made or works that are sufficiently "game like," so to speak Tongue. The official call follows:

What makes a game art? Is it a compelling experience? A story that
cannot be told elsewhere? Learn to Play is an art exhibition of video,
board and social games. The show will be held this fall at the Euphrat
Museum of Art at De Anza College, Cupertino
( as parallel programming with 2010
01SJ Biennial ( The theme is “build your own world.”

The game industry is very heavily white male oriented, and the
experience in blockbuster games and in conversations around these
games reflects this. Where are the developers of color? Where are the
queer game developers?

We are looking for stories, ideas, and compelling issues from
underrepresented communities, games that bring us to greater
understanding about race, class, social issues, or current political,
economic, international issues.

Our next deadline is August 27th. If you are interested, or know
someone who is, send a link to your work to along with
a brief description of the work and contact information.

If you have any questions feel free to reply here or email us at

Hello everyone, I'm Marek.

I love interactivity as a medium, and I've made some games, but I don't really feel like they're the direction that I want to go in. I have had a few ideas for more avant garde interactive works, and I don't know if they're games or art games or not games, but it seems to me like the differences between those categories are largely trivial. Anyway, I like the discussion that's going on here!
