Opening Friday, August 11th, from 5PM - 8PM
On view through Sunday, November 19th
On August 11th, 2017, 5-8pm VGA Gallery will open a new venue at 2418 W Bloomingdale #102 Chicago, IL 60647, the first brick and mortar art gallery devoted to video games and new media in Chicago.
The first exhibition on display for VGA Gallery’s August 11 grand opening is artwork from Savior, an experimental video game, the first to be independently developed for wide release in the changing cultural and political landscape of Cuba. With a unique story about metaphysics and deconstruction of the game world, a Gothic art style and an existential tone, Savior challenges cultural expectations, as well as formal understanding of games. Savior is being developed by Josuhe Pagliery & Johann Armenteros, it is hoped the artists will be able to attend the opening, pending a successful visa application.
