Georgia Tech and SCAD host Art History of Games conference

This is not a Magritte/Foucault reference
  • This is not a Magritte/Foucault reference

Let's be blunt. Georgia Tech isn't exactly known for their art history department. (Actually, I just checked. They don't have one.) Still, I can't image a school more qualified to organize a symposium on the Art History of Games. Working together with SCAD, the three day event will draw speakers from a variety of disciplines within academia, the fine art world and the gaming industry. Topics to be explored include "A Short History of Video Game Aesthetics," "Games as fine art,” “Players are Artists, too,” and so forth. If any of it is at all as clever as that Wii image above, it should be worth your time.

The High Museum of Art will play host on Feb. 4-6 at the Rich Auditorium on the campus of the Woodruff Arts Center. You can register and check out all the details at the symposium website.
