Re-recognition of Game
It is a party for game lovers to touch the spirit of games together.
What is game, in your mind?
An entertainment product that requires charging money, or a source of happiness in life;
An emotional stress relief, or a huge industry with 250 billion annual value of production;
Happy childhood memories, or a way to know yourself better;
The perspective you see games may affect the world in the future.
We love games for many reasons:
Enjoy victory or failure;
Fond of art or story;
Experience growth or setback;
We believe, however, good games make you a better person.
If you love playing games, and regard it as a necessity in life;
If you want to explore the world of games, and understand the human wisdom and emotions behind it;
We sincerely invite you to the exhibition of “CAFA Game Art 2018”;
Meet those like-minded players, enjoy a happy togethering, and re-recognize games from functional and artistic perspectives.
It is the first time that game works have been regarded as artistic forms and exhibited in a major national art museum. It is not making a copy of CHINAJOY (a digital entertainment expo held annually in Shanghai) in Beijing. Based on the theme of “Re-recognition of Game”, this event discusses the combination of games with other fields such as art, education and medicine, aiming to explore the functional value and cultural significance of games as well as the development direction of the digital entertainment education in China.
Form: Just like playing a game, go visit an exhibition of game
This exhibition is hosted by Central Academy of Fine Arts and is held at CAFA Art Museum. The whole event will choose and recombine the contents involved in games creation, such as innovation of playing method, narrative design, aesthetic presentation, idea expression, or game scene, character, music, world, and show them to you in a brand new way.
Simply speaking, the exhibition offers a journey of discovery and adventure about games through games to let you understand games again. If you are a game lover, you will be amazed by the well-designed links in the exhibition.
Interaction: face-to-face communication with famous game producers, let them know the game you really want to play
The exhibition will display nearly 100 well-known and less-known games, including “Minecraft”, “Monument Valley”, “Kingdom Come: Deliverance”, “Sky”, “Gorogoa”, “Cuphead”……
You will have access to the exclusive information behind these games, inspiration source, manuscripts, videos, etc., and even get chances to play their unreleased versions.
Most importantly, you will meet famous game producers and can express your love to them, “roast” your suggestions, let them know your love and thoughts for the game. Maybe the next hit game will have your ideas.
This is a carefully designed exhibition and more like a grand communication site. We need your ideas and voices.
Discovery: what else do you gain from games?
In the mind of every player, games are not just games and what we gained from games are more than happy times. To some extent, it is the games that fill up our lack of education, void of mind, regrets of life, and offer us opportunities to pursue a perfect life.
Those words for describing games are beyond games as it integrated with various disciplines such as education, medicine and culture. Perhaps there is no game in the world originally, and it appears only when more and more people “play” it. We expect to play beyond the game with you at CAFA Art Museum!
Games not only belong to its producers but also belong to the players like you and me.
