Katamari Damacy Rolls Into MoMA

Who says videogames aren't art? Certainly not The Museum of Modern Art! As part of their Century of the Child: Growing by Design exhibit, MoMA will be featuring the groundbreaking PlayStation 2 videogame, Katamari Damacy!

"Namco Bandai Games' Katamari Damacy has touched countless people, from children to adults, and is truly a modern video game classic," said Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing, Namco Bandai Games America Inc. "The inclusion of Katamari Damacy in this ground breaking exhibit is a testament to the creative designs embodied in Namco Bandai's games and shows the importance of video games in peoples' lives in addition to being a validation of video games as a modern form of interactive art."

Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900-2000 is a collection of 20th century design for children including school architecture, clothing, playgrounds, furniture, books, and toys and game design (which is where Katamari Damacy comes in, naturally!). The exhibit will be on display at the New York City museum from July 29 through November 5, 2012.

So who wants to go get cultured?

That's awesome!!
But (and I hate to sound like a party pooper) isn't its inclusion against the theme? If it's supposed to be 20th century only, from 1900-2000 as stated, Katamari Damacy obviously came out after that on the PS2 and would be breaking that guideline.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
