Chicago Design Museum Gallery Under Construction

HEY! PLAY! Games in Modern Culture
October 20, 2017–February 17, 2018

Games are a rich, dynamic medium that live in consoles and controllers as much as they do our own bodies, minds, and social relationships. The gaming industry is worth more than $100 billion and stretches far beyond what we typically see. Artists and designers are creating games about personal challenges, games that facilitate spiritual awakening, and games that challenge, edify, and critique our societies and cultures. This exhibition will showcase a cross-section of compelling examples from this diverse medium and demonstrate that at heart, we are all gamers.

Tuesday–Saturday, 12–7:00p
Free and open to the public
