25¢ A PLAY: The Art of the Videocade

25¢ A PLAY

The Art of the Videocade

Arcades in the late 1970s and early 1980s hold a particularly endearing sense of nostalgia for the American way of life. Like shopping malls and roller rinks, they were safe, isolated oases where kids with a reasonable amount of money, could spend hours unchaperoned amongst their peers in the fleeting but fantastic light of electric competition. Our debut show recreates the ultimate 1982 mall arcade experience, where top-shelf, vintage video games and pinball machines will be available for sale alongside prototypes and original Atari art.
