Professor Angela Washko‘s work is part of the exhibition “Open World: Video Games and Contemporary Art” on view at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, NH, beginning August 20. “Open World” explores how contemporary artists have been influenced by the culture of video games pervasive in popular culture since the 1970s. The exhibition features painting, sculpture, textiles, prints, drawings, animation, video games, video game modifications, and game-based performances and interventions.

The artworks in “Open World” reference a broad cross-section of games, ranging from early text adventure and arcade games to modern multi-player online roleplaying games and first-person shooters.
