Monsters, Mothers, and Mavens

2017-04-15 17:30 - 2017-04-15 20:30

A joint event with The Women Artist Team (TWAT). Go experience their installation at the Joyce Goldstein Gallery (16 Main St, Chatham NY), then come to House Rules Cafe for a roundtable discussion on identity and misconceptions in art and gaming. After the short discussion, play some games focused on the themes of monsters, romance, intrigue, and intimacy.

The moderated roundtable discussion will explore personalization and creativity in relation to forms and guidelines; the use of trope to probe challenging subject matter; misconceptions around art, identity, and gaming. This discussion is evolving out of an immersive art installation titled The Bedroom which was created by TWAT (a group of over forty contributing artists) and is currently on view at Joyce Goldstein Gallery in Chatham, NY. TWAT chose to create a bedroom because it is such a familiar space. Visitors can easily access what the space is and what the art is about. The Bedroom functions simultaneously as a subject matter and as a familiar trope.

RSVP here.
