Chess has gotten a bad rep over the years as being a game for the geeks, but not anymore. A group of artists have found a way to make the game of chess more interesting, visually appealing and even fun for the general public.
“The Art of Chess” is an exhibition that will be taking place at the Project B Gallery in Milan from April 14th-May14th 2010. The gallery will be filled with ornate and eccentric concepts surrounding the classic chess board through the eyes of artists around the world. Some sneak peaks have ranged from miniature house appliance pieces to naked barbies.
How can one go wrong with a game where loss still results in artistic enjoyment? We suggest you check it out, mate.
