“Glitch is the Soul in the Machine” is an international exhibition showcasing emergent forms of new media art that playfully reveal the way digital technologies influence our perception of reality even as they corrupt the practice of everyday life. If, as conference exhibition curator Mark Amerika suggests in his “Glitch Ontology” manifesto-performance, “Glitch is the soul in the machine,” then how do works of contemporary art reveal what is broken, dysfunctional, hacked and cracked in our information-saturated culture?
“The Glitch is the Soul in the Machine” exhibition coincides with the annual International Digital Media and Arts Association (iDMAa) conference, to be held on the campus of Winona State University from June 24-27, 2021. The exhibition features works by Corrina Espinosa, Eugenio Tisselli, Karen Krolak, Marc Manke, GOODW.Y.N. (Nicole Goodwin), Maria Anholzer, Daito Manabe, Melissa Huang, Patrick Lichty, Paul Echeverria, Rebecca Finley, Ryan D. Lewis, Will Luers, Autumn Brown, Caitlin & Misha, Kathleen Hawkes, Kim Blevins, Matt Roberts, Rachel Green, Sue Huang, Susan Hopp, Yeohyun Ahn, Alessandro Amaducci, Andre Perim, APOTROPIA, Cecilia Suhr, Cher Cornett, Frederick Maheux, Jerry Galle, jonCates and Evan Meaney, Karin Denson, Kristen Lillvis, Mark C. Marino and Rob Wittig, Mez Breeze, Richard Hoagland, Sabato Visconti, and Teresa Ueunten.
