House Advantage

Exhibition runs June 22 – July 27, 2013

House Advantage features work by artists Fabiola Carranza (AHVA MFA candidate), Yuriko Iga, Arvo Leo and Peggy & Karen Ngan based on ideas of play, chance and commerce in contemporary art practices, with a focus on the culture of gambling and games. Each of the artists have developed a work in response to leisure, economics and popular gambling games.

The exhibition is designed to actively reflect on gaming as a cultural phenomenon, encouraging our audience to consider and engage with both the value of art and how alternative forms of currency are being exchanged. The work in House Advantage initiates dialogue between social and artistic practices, triggering conversations of what produces a ‘healthy’ gambling environment and ways to potentially to mitigate gambling addiction.

Exhibition is curated by Dennis Ha.
