The New York Museum of Modern Art will be holding an art exhibit featuring several indie video games next month.


Held in association with U.S.-based Kill Screen magazine the function will feature games like Canabalt, Limbo, and Bit.Trip.Beat as well as “a new motion-based Kinect project” from two Harmonix employees.

The exhibit is being held as part of the “Talk to Me” theme which focuses on the interaction between humans and objects.

Tickets will cost $16 in advance and $20 at the door when the exhibit opens on July 27.
