A free to visit public exhibition of video game art will feature in the closing week of this year’s London Games Festival.
It will be hosted at Mayor Boris Johnson’s City Hall and will run for five days. Rare pieces have been donated by developers, publishers and artists across a range of medium including paintings and sculpture.
Contributors include Guerrilla Games, Sports Interactive, Team 17, Warner Bros, Pop Cap, Jess Bradley, Konami, Lady Shotgun and Media Molecule.
The pieces will all be auctioned off at the end of the exhibition with proceeds going to games charity Special Effect.
“This is a real coup for this year’s London Games Festival,” event director Kirsty Payne stated. “The generosity of the games industry continues to astonish – we’ve already been donated some incredible pieces which have never been seen in public before. So not only will it make a fascinating exhibition of very rare art, it’ll raise a significant amount for Special Effect.
“Anyone wishing to donate material for should get in touch with us at UKIE and we’ll do the rest. The art exhibition will form the cornerstone of this year’s Games Festival, so it’s a brilliant opportunity to get your art in front of a unique audience whilst raising money for charity at the same time.”
The exhibition will run between October 22nd and 26th. London Games Festival kicks off on September 27th.
