Video games have come a long way since Pong; the video game is an artistic medium all its own now. “From Concept to Console” looks at art in video games, pulling back the curtain to reveal the process of how it is conceived and created. It’s an examination of the creativity, diversity, and wide range of artistry that spans many disciplines in a medium that is, in some ways, still in its infancy. “Our goal from the outset was to move past the outdated question of whether video games can be considered art because we believe that, emphatically, they can be. Instead, we wanted to highlight games that we think are pushing the medium forward – those that display the highest levels of artistry – and the artists who contribute so much to the final product,” notes co-curator and Opalka Director Elizabeth Greenberg. The seven games from six different studios appearing in the exhibit reflect the spirit of conceptual problem solving and aesthetic beauty in a multitude of ways that embody the range of talent, skills, interests as well as the cultural backgrounds of the artists who created them.
