25 years after Midway Games' NBA Jam changed video games and fueled interest in professional basketball, All Star Press and VGA Gallery are delighted to present an exhibition celebrating this iconic title. It features the playable game cabinet itself, artifacts from NBA Jam's development and history, and a suite of new artwork by acclaimed artists from around the world, inspired by the game. The opening reception will feature interviews with game creators Mark Turmell and Sal DiVita and voice actor Tim Kitzrow, who will be in attendance. We will also be screening footage from the forthcoming documentary by Josh Tsui, Insert Coin: Inside Midway's '90s Revolution.
