Hosted by the Museum of Design of Atlanta, Georgia, XYZ: Alternative Voices in Game Design pays homage to the work of women as game designers and artist. The exhibition opened on July 14, 2013 and will remain open until September 1, 2013. Among the 40+ artworks on display are the early Atari arcade game Centipede (1981), the computer game Mainichi, and a variety of board games.
"Co-presented by MODA and Georgia Tech’s Digital Media Program, XYZ: Alternative Voices in Game Design is the first-ever exhibition that highlights the work of women as game designers and artists. A response to the popular misconception that women neither play nor create video games, this interactive exhibition redefines viewers’ perceptions of what games are and can be. XYZ introduces guests to alternative games that are outside the mainstream and demonstrates their capacity to convey a diverse range of ideas, experiences and emotions." (MODA)
