Assalamualaikum Babycastles, the premiere exhibition at Babycastles Gallery!
May 27th – August 31st, 2014
Opening ReceptionTuesday May 27th, 6:30pm–9:30pm
Babycastles Gallery137 W 14th St, New York The premiere exhibition at Babycastles Gallery, Assalamualaikum Babycastles is an exploration of the “lived Muslim experience” through the embedded narratives of independent, contemporary video games. These stories capture the various threads of Muslim life throughout the world and deal with subjects such as surveillance, war, and classical Muslim art. The games give visitors the agency to partake in these experiences inside Babycastles Gallery, where an immersive, physical installation inspired by Islamic aesthetics and created by contemporary artists houses the work. In addition to independent game developers, Assalamualaikum Babycastles will also feature work from “modders” who appropriate existing, western-based video games and visually fashion them into experiences that reflect their own.
