A Panel Discussion on Dungeons & Dragons In Contemporary Art


A panel discussion on “Dungeons & Dragons In Contemporary Art” is taking place on Saturday, November 6th at Allegra LaViola Gallery in NYC.

The interface between art and games is especially provocative for many artists whose imaginations were shaped by the 1974 publication of Dungeons & Dragons, which founded a uniquely free-form and collaborative genre of role-playing games.

This panel brings together contemporary artists who play within the realm of role playing games. Using these games as more than a vehicle for nostalgic posturing, these artists critically engage RPGs as tools for creative intervention, criticism, and shared experience.
