Into the Pixel - An Exhibition of the Art of he Video Game    


Fourth Annual Into the Pixel Accepting Submissions through May 4th

Release Date: 4/10/2007

Submissions are now being accepted for the 2007 Into the Pixel collection, which will premiere at a reception and juror panel discussion hosted by Creative Artists Agency in Los Angeles, June 2007.  The framed artwork will be unveiled at the E3 Media & Business Summit in Santa Monica, Calif., July 11-13, 2007, and will open to the public at Entertainment for AllTM Expo (E for All) – October 18-21, 2007, in Los Angeles.

The annual Into the Pixel exhibition is presented by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS), and the Prints and Drawings Council of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).  The exhibition is a cultural exploration and celebration of the art of the video game, and will feature 16 extraordinary works, hand-selected by a panel of esteemed jurors from submissions by artists throughout the global video game art community. 

“The constant cross-pollination between the entertainment world and the art world cannot be ignored,” says Kevin Salatino, Curator of Prints and Drawings at LACMA and lead juror for Into the Pixel.  “Understanding and explaining where one stops and the other begins is where the real difficulty lies, though why, ultimately, does it matter?  We have seen startling things happening in the last decade as Japanese anime – perhaps the most overt example of videogame art influencing “fine” art – has infiltrated the world of high art.  I predict that as more and more artistic talent is absorbed into the game world, the cross-flow from discipline to discipline will become ever more invasive and imperceptible.”

The deadline for Into the Pixel submissions is May 4, 2007!
