A new exhibit opening at the Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) (co-sponsored by the Georgia Tech Digital Media Program) hopes to highlight the fact that women have a strong presence in the gaming industry and contribute to it greatly. The exhibition, dubbed "XYZ: Alternative Voices in Game Design," will be the first to highlight the work of women as game designers and artists.
Organizers describe the exhibition as a "response to the popular misconception that women neither play nor create video games" by redefining the public's perceptions of "what games are and can be." XYZ will feature "alternative games that are outside the mainstream" that are designed to "convey a diverse range of ideas, experiences and emotions."
The exhibition runs July 14 - September 1 at the Museum of Design Atlanta (15 Peachtree Street, across from the High Museum of Art). Members of MODA are invited to attend a special preview on Saturday, July 13th from 11am-2pm. Curators will be on hand to answer questions and offer further information on the exhibition.
