The Art of Gaming
The Art of Gaming Conference is an exhibition, a story, a dance, and an experience!
During a four-day programme within the opening of the Kaleidoscope of Culture, in District, at the Radionica facility, from 1 to 4 September, visitors will have an opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of gaming art and to peek behind the pixels of everything that makes the world of gaming so fascinating. Gaming is not just a game we play to spend our free time. Gaming is the art that calls for action.
From the first video game of simple tennis on an oscilloscope almost 65 years ago to the fully immersive experience that modern video games offer, where mostly all the senses are activated, gaming has come a long way. The very act of playing games, which is at the core of what we call gaming, would not be nearly as interesting if the art in video games did not develop simultaneously with the design of video games. Screenplay, music, and 2D and 3D graphics are inevitable artistic elements of video games that take us to the centre of the action.
The curator of the program is Dr. Tijana Prodanović, an astrophysicist and famous Tiktok star.
