Organized by curator and moderated FIU visiting art faculty professor, Dustin London.
Game Show explores “gaming” as it is played out in a wide range of contemporary art practices through the work of nine nationally and internationally exhibiting artists and/or musicians: Jeremy Couillard, Mariah Dekkenga, Aaron Hughes, Dustin London, Russell Maltz, Michael Namkung, Michael Perrone, Jacob Sudol, and Brian Zegeer. Work included in the exhibition is influenced by, or makes reference to, board games, video games, puzzles, sports and athletics, or has in some way a game-like mindset in concept or construction. Much of the work repurposes the parameters or structures of a game to call attention to process rather than objective, or redefines the objective entirely. Though a sense of play runs throughout the exhibition, some pieces use the traditionally light-hearted nature of gaming as a foil for aesthetic or even existential concerns, using gaming as a metaphor for the complexities and absurdities of life itself. The exhibition will also feature two nights of performance, including an aerobic drawing performance incorporating audience participation by FIU Assistant Professor of Drawing Michael Namkung and an electronic music performance by FIU Assistant Professor of Composition and Director of Music Technology Jacob Sudol and his FIU Laptop and Electro-Acoustic (FLEA) Ensemble.
