Many of you expressed interest in seeing the results of playing Exquisite Corpse, the collaborative sequential narrative game at Gameshow NYC.

Not to be confused with a TV Game Show, Game Show NYC (GSNYC) expands the concept of an Art Show by making the enjoyment of art an active and educative experience.
GSNYC will serve as a forum to bring together artists, educators, and game designers, with the purpose of engaging and educating the public. Game Show NYC builds on Game Show Detroit, which was held at the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit (CAID) in 2006. For details on the original exhibition please see:
