Endgame

A show about playing videogames

We asked a group of international artists to share some of their favourite video game memories and create all new work based on that one hard to finish level, great boss fight or the feeling of finally beating a game.

Video games are a mainstay of popular culture, with the video game industry surpassing both the movie and the music industry in numbers. In 2012 MoMA even added a selection of games to their collection, confirming their cultural importance and influence on the art world.

It is no understatement to say that a lot of the young artists working today grew up playing and being inspired by video games. We wanted to tap into that by asking artists to share some of their favourite video game memories.

They came back with great pieces, many created digitally, based on well known 8-bit arcade classics but also on more obscure, recent cult hits. From racing, to soccer and even rapping games, the works on show are as diverse as the games that are out there and the people that play them.

See the full list of participating artists for more details.

Get some of the pieces in the show on your desktop or iPhone via the exclusive Kuvva set which was created for the exhibition and head to our webshop if you're interested in one of the pieces.
