about the exhibition

Glitch Generation is a group exhibition of artworks rooted in mistakes, either intentional or found, including "glitches" in the wiring of our brains. Some participating artists have created a unique environment to produce a malfunction in an otherwise stable system, while others have happened upon a glitch by chance. The exhibition also includes a Music/Performance on April 1 and a Video Screening on May 6.

The glitch art aesthetic is in part a reflection and representation of the digital age. The fast development and quick improvements of media devices like phones, cameras and computers have heightened our expectations of communications tools. Glitch Generation plays with our collective expectations by pointing out the malfunctions, mistakes and imperfections that inevitably occur despite our desire for perfection.

Whether the artist intentionally used a computer program to create a glitch, manipulated hardware to create a manufactured imperfect environment, or came across the aberration by chance, each saw an opportunity to create beauty and to work with color and form in a new way by shedding light on the glitches.
