Why Chess is So Amazing! Special Exhibition for London Olympics 2012

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

To coincide with the London 2012 Olympics, Gallery Libby Sellers is currently holding an exhibition entitled Games. The show laterally interprets its title and the theme of 'play' by focusing on chess, other games and their accessories, with pieces designed by Rolf Sachs, Aberrant Architecture and Studio Frith, among others. Here is a chess video interview with Simon Hasan about his Slice chess set and Paul Kelley on his games table in an attempt to understand why chess is such a perennial source of entertainment. Libby Sellers herself takes us through the inspiration for the exhibition.
