"We’re pleased to announce our next public programme, and our first outside of the Vector Game Art Festival! Team Vector will be partnering for the second time with videofag, a storefront cinema and performance space in Toronto’s Kensington Market.
videofag co-presented the special screening A Stranger Comes to Town: Identity and the Avatar during Vector 2013, and we are excited to co-curate a two day pop-up arcade and exhibition: Queer Arcade.
Until June 1st, 2013, videofag and TeamVector invite you to submit work that relates to the theme “Queer Arcade.” The exhibition will be a pop-up arcade taking place at videofag in Toronto, Ontario July 27-28, with a reception on the evening of the 27th.
We are open to works that address the theme “Queer Arcade” in unexpected ways. Feel free to submit video games made for any platform, experimental GAYmes, Queering of traditional games, ROM hacks, machinima, board games, RPGs, card games, arcade ephemera, and works in any other medium that address the the theme of Queerness in video games.
Works of all media will be considered. Works from artists in all stages of their creative careers and from the LGBT community are encouraged. All works for this exhibition will be selected by members of both team vector and videofag.
