Game Night is a series of events presenting artist-made games inspired by underlying themes from popular games such as the Ouija board and Mad Libs co-curated with Anna Harsanyi. Through playful exchanges created by artists, this series invites participants to interact with works of art, have a conversation, and explore how games illustrate the ways we communicate and reflect on the world around us and each other.
This series was generously funded by the Awesome Foundation for the 2016 - 2017 season.
