In 1944 André Breton criticized chess and chess playing artists saying that "what must be changed is the game itself, not the pieces." Since then many artists have reformulated the design but few have proposed an evolution of the gameplay. This Wednesday at Kadist SF we'll devote an evening to artist mutations of the game of chess. Featuring l'Échiqueté, a new project by Patrick Bernier and Olive Martin, and Guido van der Werve's film Nummer twaalf, 2009.
