Join Qendrim Hoti in this special tutorial workshop as he demonstrates his ideas and techniques about manipulating commercial video games into virtual worlds of memoir and relief. This workshop, held in conjunction with Galaxy Champion Fun Zone™, a two-person exhibition featuring collaborative work by Hoti and Max Lupo. 

"Galaxy Champion Fun Zone™" uses the video game technology of the past three decades to create an interactive installation. By using hacked and modified video games, Hoti and Lupo insert personal migrant histories into existing virtual worlds as a means to recontextualize their familiar contents. They invite visitors to play these games as a way to explore these alternate characters and environments.

The workshop is free and open to the public. No special materials are required.
Ignite Gallery is located at 165 Augusta Avenue (in the heart of Kensington market).
