The new ongoing exhibition ArtGameLab at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) offers an exciting approach to exploring art by presenting games designed especially for the SFMOMA community.
Last summer the museum put out an open call asking for exciting yet simple game ideas that could be played by all museum visitors. People can now view and play five of the 50 game proposals that were submitted by designers and artists, as well as a series of digital games created by SFMOMA’s education department.
The games being featured include Super Going, a game where participants are given creative and exploratory missions to be completed at SFMOMA or at home, and I Know What I Like, where people take on the persona of one of six characters and travel the museum with their character’s personality in mind instead of their own.
Visitors can submit their ideas for interactive games at the game-design station as well as share ideas and experiences online via SFMOMA’s social media platforms.
