Chris Melissinos, guest curator of an exhibit about video games explains what makes the genre an art form. The art of video games exhibit is at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in D.C. from March 16th to September 30th.
It’s amazing how times change, the subject of video games as art or not has been going on for years with most gamers and those in the industry on the side of games being art. Even Roger Ebert’s chimed in with a controversial post a few years ago where he proclaimed that video games could never be considered art then backtracked saying that one day it will. I think that day has officially come.
I need to figure out a need to travel to D.C. in the next few months!
