How Video Games Captured the World’s Imagination


In the 40+ years since video games first winked into existence, they have become a global phenomena and emerged as an important artistic and storytelling medium in popular culture. Chris Melissinos, creator and guest curator of The Art of Video Games, traces the games’ journey from humble beginnings to global sensation, explores why we love them, and reveals how this groundbreaking exhibition came to be.

Afterward, he will be on hand to sign copies of the exhibition catalogue "The Art of Video Games: From Pac-Man to Mass Effect" ($40) co-authored by Mr. Melissinos and Patrick O'Rourke.
