Ping-pong yourself back in time with Game On at Central Park, a month-long interactive gaming activation presented by Chippendale’s Central Park, The Living Mall, in partnership with multi-award winning Ambush Gallery.

Launching on Friday, 18 September as an associated event of Art & About 2015, Game On at Arcadia invites Sydney-siders to come together in a veritable gathering of chic geeks to play for hours (and for free) in Arcadia’s pop-up games arcade, replete with all the irresistible hallmarks of a 1980s revival.

Featuring interactive retro throwbacks such as pinball, air hockey, foosball and ping-pong, Game On at Arcadia will transform Central Park and Ambush Gallery’s exhibition space into a buzzing games hall that brings all the neon and sci-fi references of arcades past to Sydney’s contemporary gamers.

“What an incredible opportunity to get in touch with our younger selves,” said Felicity Armstrong, Centre Manager of Central Park, The Living Mall. “Game On at Arcadia will be an invigoratingly fresh and creative addition to Art & About 2015 and to the cultural life of Sydney as a whole, and all of us at Central Park are thrilled to host such a fun and interactive event.”

Art & About is a collaborative arts festival where every street, laneway, building site, intersection, and thoroughfare is a canvas. Now in its 14th year, the 2015 festival will run during September and October.

International graffiti legend Sofles will blast the exhibition space from floor to ceiling with murals that burst with his iconic graphic style, and videographer Selina Miles will screen her film of Sofles’ process as an ongoing video installation in the gallery.

James Jirat Patradoon and his curated line-up of artists including Chris Yee, Georgia Hill and Gerald Leung to help customise the ping-pong tables and pinball machines so they become art installations in themselves. Additional retro arcade games and playful activations will be studded throughout The Living Mall and in the cubby green park.
