'Play Along' at Gaîté Lyrique
All summer long Joue le Jeu / Play Along showcases new forms of games that are at the heart of the emerging golden age of creative game design. Prepare to be entertained. This exhibition isn’t a static retrospective, but rather an active celebration of all types of interactive play: from innovative, cutting-edge video games, to mixed digital/physical, social and even board games. On the menu: The Building is, from Hide&Seek (UK) – a game that winds its way throughout the building and allows visitors to interact with, and influence, its moods! Opérette, a delightful experience from Daily tous les jours (Canada, QC) that playfully brings the history of la Gaîté lyrique to life.
In Meowton, the hot New York collective Babycastles transforms a whole gallery into a sprawling cat-themed game town…
Until Sun 12 Aug. 2-8pm. Closed Mon.
