The NYU Game Center Lecture Series invites influential game designers, theoreticians, and thinkers to the Center to share their thoughts with the community of students, local game developers, & others at the NYU Game Center.

The Game Center Lecture Series is happy to present Chris Melissinos, guest curator of the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s “The Art of Video Games: From Pac-Man to Mass Effect” exhibit, discussing the evolution of video games from their humble beginnings to eventual arrival as one of the most significant forms of artistic expression in human history. With unique insight that spans his almost 40 years of playing, collecting, developing, and curating video games, Melissinos discusses how video games have grown in importance, the opportunity they represent in transforming culture, and how he turned this passion into one of the most visited exhibitions in the history of the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
