Fantastic Arcade Retro(spective)
Fantastic Arcade returns as the yearly celebration of indie and cult video games. For our first show under the Museum of Human Achievement, Fantastic Arcade will be hosting a retrospective as part of the East Austin Studio Tour, looking back on the last 10 years of commissioned and showcased games. To do this we’ve asked 22 artists to create a new environment, visual compliment or conceptual home to each custom arcade cabinet.
