All Fun & Games
Wednesday May 14
Artist Matthew Kaney will be showing his work, All Fun & Games, at the FAC Gallery April 4–May 24, 2014. Receptions for the exhibition will be held from 6 – 9 PM on April 11th and May 9th during the 2nd Friday Circuit of Art.
All Fun & Games is an innovative exhibition featuring the video arcade game as a medium of visual art. Through his body of work, Matthew Kaney creates video arcade games which present satirical commentary on contemporary political issues. His work also explores the way technologies of virtualization and simulation have allowed us to detach from the global consequences of our actions. By capitalizing on the omnipresent nature of these technologies and the way they blur the distinction between “real” and “virtual,” Matthew is able to use arcade games for his own self-expression while inciting conversation about the nature of video games as art.
