DESCRIPTION

Join us on November 6, 2010 for a panel discussion on Dungeons & Dragons in contemporary art!

Art and games are both forms of ritualized human creativity. When Marcel Duchamp gave up the former to pursue the latter, he famously said ”I have come to the personal conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, al...l chess players are artists.”

The interface between art and games is especially provocative for many artists whose imaginations were shaped by the 1974 publication of Dungeons & Dragons, which founded a uniquely free-form and collaborative genre of role-playing games.

This panel brings together contemporary artists to explore the ways in which making art is like and unlike playing a role within a game.
