The Longitude exhibition presents cultural, experimental and arts practices in the medium of games. Showcasing artists from across the Asia-Pacific Region working with games and play, the exhibition will also include workshops, film screenings, and presentations. Central to this project is the invigoration of games as activities inclusive of a broad range of audiences. This means absolutely everyone is welcome.
Longitude celebrates games and play as a broad and persistent aspect of culture with the capacity to connect diverse groups. The works highlight games as activities beyond escapist entertainment but as nuanced, challenging and inspiring forms of expression that bring a broader understanding of the world and the people it.
The title of the exhibition longitude refers to the timezone shared by Australia with the Asia Pacific region. These temporal rhythms see the entire Asia Pacific playing together at the same time. Our play is connected, not just through Internet cables, but via lines of longitude.
