Cars and Crimes

On July 19th a stolen car rolled down the hill driverless and crashed into likelike’s front door. We acknowledge this irruption of real life into the art world with a special exhibition of delinquent driving games that are not Grand Theft Auto.
What it is like to make love to a gay car? To be a one-armed bear at the wheel? To steal a car from your boss and drive it through an infinite shopping mall? To escape your past during Italy’s tumultuous seventies? To drive blindfolded against traffic?

Fanciful Bodies

Enter a world of sensual, infinitely malleable avatars. Healing bodies, metamorphosing bodies, impossible bodies. The games included in this exhibition play with magical anatomies and queer desires, acting as antidotes to the disembodiment of the digital realm.

International Playbor Day

Is play the antithesis of work? The games included in this exhibition confront the theme of labor from a variety of perspectives. Solve the gender pay gap with crimes, mine gold on a magical asteroid, revel in white collar alienation, discover new types of emotional labor, shatter glass ceilings and gender bias, fantasize about a post-work society.
Free entry and free play, you have nothing to lose but your chains!

CITIZEN CANINE

Citizen Canine is an exhibition of videogames that look at our society from the eyes of our best friends. Solve a reactionary squirrel conspiracy, create mayhem in a Russian subway station, selectively breed the purest purebred, build a city of fleas and ticks, lead an operatic animal strike…
This is not just memes and cuteness, it’s radical pawlitics!

*Bring your own dog to the show! We’ll have treats, pee cleaning supplies, and a fenced outdoor area.
