RETRO VIDEO GAMES, I-III GENERATION

Vernissage: 14th of April 2011, Urban Outfitters (Stockholm)

In the beautiful local of one of Stockholm’s old movie theater, the pop fashion retailer, Urban Outfitters, now has an ongoing exhibition of the game-art.

According to the curator Olof Löf, this type of art has become an established concept within the art world as artists are influenced from games both in physical work as well as using their art in video games.

With a charming contrast to the painted ceilings and golden details of the old movie theater, the game-art exhibition is a great addition to this funky store of fashion, vintage, design and books, which at the opening night seemed to attract a delightful mix of different people.

Openings hours: Monday – Friday, 10.00 – 19.00 ; Saturday, 10.00 – 17.00 ; Sunday, 12.00 – 17.00
