Galerie 3 presents Worldbuilding, a transgenerational, multinational show examining how contemporary artists are appropriating the aesthetics and technology of gaming as their chosen form of expression.

In so doing, this exhibit presents a plurality of voices and a multitude of perspectives. Several of the featured artists in the exhibit began making work that refers to video games as early as the 1980’s while most of the others were just born around that time. For the works in this show, artists have addressed video games in various ways. Some have adapted their themes and visual style to make videos. Others have modified, hacked, and subverted existing video games.
