June 13th, 2015 – Collaborative Combative Drawing was part of the X Games at Root Division (gallery) in San Francisco.
“Root Division invites you– artists, curators, writers, preparators, and arts enthusiasts– to join us for an evening of riveting, never-before-seen art world stunts! Each pulse-racing game pits artists, curators and preparators against unfathomable odds– and you can play along. Go behind the scenes with games like Preparapurgatory, prove your knowledge in the artist name spelling bee, battle in Combat Drawing, sing your favorite dense text in Theory-okey, or try your hand at Hyper Realist Dictionary.
The RDX Games were designed to poke fun at the art world and help us all to stop taking ourselves so seriously. Come join the fun and crush the competition.
