A Whole Different Ball Game: Playing Through 60 Years of Sports Video Games
November 1, 2018 @ 6:00 am - March 10, 2019 @ 1:00 pm
See and play more than 40 sports video games spanning the last six decades, examining the complex relationships between game, sport, media, and culture. The exhibition considers what it means for full-body sports to be transposed to screens and controllers in the service of realism, who is or isn’t represented in sports video games, the ways broadcast sports and video games reflect one another, and the primacy of statistics in professional sports and sports simulators.
Poet Scott Raven and artist Josefina Hernandez join forces to tell multi-level, interactive “Storied Stories” with words and pictures. Together they look through windows, open doors, and climb the rooftops of our imaginations to bring heARTfelt tales of family fun and adventure. With wit, humor and wonder, these carefully woven tales will bring the Museum’s exhibits to life.
