Game Show

James Cohan Gallery

Group Exhibition James Cohan Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of our exhibition The Game Show. The exhibition is based around the notion of "games" as physical, emotional, linguistic and political maneuvers. Wittengenstein, the Viennese fin-de-siècle philosopher, once remarked that the word "game" was virtually impossible to define – for what is not a game in life. In the context of a benign chess match, a game of cards or perhaps table tennis, the participants engage in a complex set of issues both consciously and unconsciously.
