Vector 2014 Dates: February 19 to 23, 2014. Toronto, Canada.
Vector Game + Art Convergence, now in its second year, is a five-day game art festival and symposium centred around games as the tool and inspiration for contemporary art making. Team Vector invites you to submit to its festival programming until January 1, 2014.
Game art is a diverse field characterized by a wide variety of creative practices. Accordingly, this open call invites submissions from artists working in many different contexts and media. For Vector 2014, we are seeking works that critically address the politics, technologies, representations, and aesthetics of video games. Artists at all stages of their creative careers – from emerging to established – are encouraged to submit their work.
Works For Exhibition.
Works of all media will be considered for inclusion in an exhibition surveying a wide spectrum of practices within game art. We seek video installations, games, interactive works of new media, print media, sculpture, textile and more are. In particular, we are looking for works that push beyond simple expressions of fandom, and which explore the convergence of game-making and media art to challenge assumptions about gaming writ large. Formal investigations of the video game medium are just as welcome as works that push the broader concept of ‘games’ into the experimental.
