Playing with PLAY!

As PLAY! is open from now until 31st October, I thought I’d blog about it a little differently – offering small yet enticing snippets of information cunningly designed to make you want to drop everything and head to Access Space, Sheffield.

PLAY!, if you don’t know, is an exhibition around the theme of video games, devised and curated by myself and artist Sharon Mossbeck. Beginning as an open call, PLAY! allowed many artists – both national and international – to respond to the theme of video games. Responses were vast,Β with artists using games as a vehicle for personal reflection, social comment, and metaphorical descriptions of complex issues, as well as a tool for escapism and as a window highlighting shared experiences.

14 artists and 17 pieces are represented, offering the viewer the challenge of processing a lot of information within a small space – a process intrinsic to the workings of a games console. Well, that was the plan anyway. I think it was successful, but you can see for yourself by visiting Access Space between now and 31st October (though it’s closed Sundays and Mondays.)

You will also be able to find out more information on PLAY!’s official page, found here.
