Games Play and Performance

Companion Page for 

PLAY + ART

INTRODUCTION

ABOUT THIS LIST... 

This page is built off of a companion I created for a presentation I delivered on Intersections of Play, Art and Identity so you will see sections that still reflect those of that talk. Because we have already discussed many of the play concepts I've decided to leave them in these sections.

 

There are artists that we talked about in class here and a few that we weren't able to get too. Please take some time to view at least those we discussed in class and add to the corresponding discussion in canvas.
