The Ghost Arcade is a collaborative exhibition project between Skot Deeming, a Canadian interdisciplinary artist, curator and scholar, whose work spans the spectrum of new media practice from broadcast media to computational art, experimental videogames, and game art; Dominique Pelletier, a multidisciplinary translation and media scholar, and the Museo del Juguete Antiguo Mexicano (The Museum of Ancient Toys). Over the latter portion of the summer, eight artists - Arturo Cruz Pinon (Artuur), Frida Escobar ( Pasto Pasto), Daniel Buchsbaum, Fher Val, Michael Brandon Aguilar Teran, Gabriel Galacia (Mr. Lemonade), Bili Bala and Aline Herrera will be exploring the halls and alleyways of Mexico City’s markets and plazas - drawing from its street art and game cultures as inspiration to build custom arcade cabinets using found materials. The full exhibition will open on August 24th.
