Game Theory is a group exhibition that examines chance, participation, and play in art practices. Curated for the Cornish College of the Arts Main Gallery by Cable Griffith, this exhibit brings together visual and performing artists lured by the unexpected consequences of surrendering control, conducting synthesis, and strategic intervention. Inspired by the inquiries into chance operations by Cornish legends Merce Cunningham and John Cage, the exhibition will be accompanied by a series of music, dance, and theater performances by Cornish students and faculty.

The artists in Game Theory share a similar affinity for indeterminacy, while still pulling the strings. The exhibition features visual works by John Cage, Joseph Gray, Jason Hirata, Tim Knowles, Chauney Peck, Steve Roden, Paul Rucker, Cara Tomlinson, and Brent Watanabe, with music performances by Wayne Horvitz, Paul Rucker, and Steve Roden.
