Learn to Play: Open call to gamersartists

   0



Hey Dtoid!

I am curating a games as art show at the Euphrat Museum of Art in Cupertino, Ca entitled Learn to Play. I got tired of the games aren't art argument so a friend and I decided to curate a museum exhibition of games. We are doing an open call for game like art like things and I am trying to get the word out to any artists / developers / humans out there that think they have the stuff.

-----------------------------------------------

Open Call:
Deadline: July 31, 2010
Submit to: info [at] toplay.us

Are you a game maker? Are you telling compelling stories about your life or the world around you? Are you doing interesting things through games and interactivity that cannot be done elsewhere?
If you are telling a story, relaying an experience, or interacting with a player in an innovative or novel way we want to see it. Learn to Play is calling for submissions of work for a new museum show built around games as art. Learn to Play will be opening this fall as parallel programming for the 2010 01SJ Biennial. The theme is “Build your own world.”

What makes a game art? Is it a compelling experience? A story that cannot be told elsewhere?

Learn to Play is an Art Museum exhibition of video, board and social games. This call is to let artists, coders, designers, etc. nominate their work or the work of others.



Why is this happening?

The tools for game design are now ubiquitous, and we know that people are making compelling mini-games and vignettes in addition to full-blown games by indy designers. Our hope is to reach out into the communities and find work from today’s emerging creators.

Who is doing this?

The Euphrat Museum of Art at De Anza College, Cupertino, as parallel programming with the 01SJ Biennial

How do you submit work?



We are working on a submission process that will be posted as the deadline approaches. At this time you can drop us an email at info [at] toplay.us and we will keep you up to date when our submission system opens. We are happy to screen games that are playable on multiple platforms. Send us the link along with your name and what the game is about.



When are the deadlines?



Our first round of submissions is due July 31.


Learn to Play is about the expression of art and life through games.
