FREE and open to the public

Melissa E. Feldman, curator of the ICI touring exhibition Push Play currently on view at The College of Wooster Art Museum, will present a talk titled Playing in the Expanded Field: Art, Activism, and Games, a talk on the history and relationship of art and games in modern and contemporary art practices. The lecture will take place at 7pm in the Ebert Art Center, Rm. 223.

Push Play explores the work of artists who borrow from play and games to reveal social, philosophical, and cultural issues. From playfulness, to mathematical strategy, the artists in Push Play have mined the significance of games, reinventing them to create experiences, often meant to be involving the viewer, and reflecting on the nature of participation in art.
