Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt

Publish date:

The V&A has announced a new exhibition to launch this September, called Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt.

Celebrating and exploring groundbreaking design in video games since the mid-2000s, the exhibition will feature original prototypes, early character designs, notebooks and much more from games that pushed the boundaries of game design. It will also delve into how video games explore “complex and sensitive subject matters such as representation, race, sexuality and geo-politics."

Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us, Thatgamecompany’s Journey, Nintendo’s Splatoon, Riot Games’ League of Legends and Cardboard Computer’s Kentucky Route Zero will be among the titles featured in Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt, which will run from September 8th 2018 to February 24th 2019. Tickets are now available to purchase on the V&A's website.
