From April 29 to May 1,18th Street Arts Center live streamed Games, an online film festival centered around the idea of play, curated by Paul Pescador and Maura Brewer. Following the online screening was a live streamed conversation with the curators, followed by an audience Q&A. In the conversation, Maura Brewer and Paul Pescador guide us through an insightful overview of video art history and contemporary video art practices. In discussion the artists provide their takes on the films on view in the Games screening. Through their transactions, the curators highlight how play can be a radical act within capitalism and its crucial role within the current pandemic.
