Mattea Perrotta's new drawings and rugs are currently on display in Animal Crossing New Horizons. The collection is currently on display online as part of Et al., a gallery directed by Jackie Im, Aaron Harbour, and Kevin Krueger and located in the basement of Union Cleaners in San Francisco's Chinatown. In 2017, Et al. opened its second location, Et al. etc., a gallery in the Mission. This is another example of tangible, concrete art being exhibited and recontextualized in video game spaces.
