DESCRIPTION

Artcade is an exhibition celebrating retro gaming culture.

Beach have invited 6 artists to produce a piece of artwork inspired by a vintage arcade machine from the ‘Golden Era’ of coin-operated gaming.

Cabinets on show will be Pac Man, Galaxian, Space Invaders, Asteroids, Donkey Kong and Street Fighter II. Exhibiting artists include Gemma Shiel (Lazy Oaf), Anthony Burrill, Pete Fowler, Jon Burgerman, Rosy Nicholas and Malarky.

During the show Beach will be recording the top scores on each machine. At the end, each cabinet’s top-scorer will win the artwork that accompanies it. There’ll also be a limited-edition risograph print of each artwork available if your Joystick-waggling’s not up to scratch…

There will be a number of events during the exhibition celebrating gaming culture, including book launches, film screenings, and other events.

Please follow the hashtag #ArtcadeBeach for more information, and contact charlie@beachlondon.co.uk for a list of the artworks and prints.
