Play the game. Be the game. Hit the Egg and Spoon Rave and the Three-Legged Dance Off or ramp it up at the Pong World Cup. Can't take the pressure? Stretch out in our Sport Physio Chill Out Room and then compete quietly in the Sack Race Life Drawing. Don’t miss the Dungeons and Drag Show from The Bearded Tit or our Opening Ceremony Piñata Pounding. Geek out and get your game on.
Bridging the gap between art and games, Chris and Daniel challenge you to be a sport (and get a little competitive), along with an Egg and Spoon Rave and the Three-Legged Dance Off. We’ve developed The Competition Games to fill a gap in the sport–art divide. We’ve reimagined the games we loved as kids and re-appropriated them for a party at the MCA.
Chris Fox interrogates the conceptual and material boundaries between art and architecture. The October 2018 ARTBAR is created with performer and producer Daniel Nimmo, who specialises in interactive live shows.
‘I will play the game, Dan will be the game. And vice versa.’
