    To celebrate the close of the [Glitch Art is Dead: Minneapolis] exhibition and event series, Gamut Gallery welcomed Alex Kmett of Zombie Bite to curate a night of live A/V performances in the gallery. Noise Night featured influential makers in the local noise music scene including Albert Elmore, Seth Van Horn, and John Vance performing their latest solo projects PD, Black Lotus, and Trigger Alert. Fresh off a West Coast tour, local power electronics act Gnawed took the stage, as well as touring band Frightened Moon (Chicago), and VJ Steve Killingbeck.

    Noise music shares the same spirit and philosophy of glitch art. Both use various analog and digital data manipulation techniques to intentionally corrupt files, generate chaos and innovate new ways to explore visuals and sound. Inherently experimental and often more esoteric than musical, these musicians escape traditional sonic confines in favor of exploration using electronic samplers, synths, guitar pedals, heavy processing, reverb, microphones and feedback. Lots of feedback.

    The “Glitch Art is Dead: Minneapolis” exhibition was a collection of glitch works from over 80 artists that represented a total of 23 countries. Over 300 individuals from across the world submitted in excess of 2,000 works to the open call. Co-curators and organizers Miles Taylor (Minneapolis), Aleksandra Pieńkosz (Kraków), and Zoe Stawska (Warsaw) distinguished stylistic subgenres, dividing the selected works by technique to highlight the variety of mediums, inspirations, and conceptions found within the glitch art community.

    Although glitch art’s roots go back to the 20th century, it is a nascent artistic movement with a far-flung, but significantly-sized, community centered around the Glitch Artists Collective with a Facebook following of over 52,000 people. An international artistic project which started in Kraków, Poland in 2015, Glitch Art is Dead kicked off at Teatr Barakah with an exhibit of 30 artists and a day of workshops. It is the initiative’s goal to foster a deep sense of community by bringing these digital denizens into the real world. The Glitch Art is Dead: Minneapolis exhibition aimed to further deny its title, introducing the viewer to a wide spectrum of artwork that showcased the vitality of the practice.

    An international artistic project which started in Krakow, Poland in 2015, Glitch Art is Dead kicked off at Teatr Barakah with an exhibit of 30 artists and a day of workshops. Hosted by Gamut Gallery, the 2017 Minneapolis installment featured an exhibition of more than 90 artists from around the world; a three-day weekend of Glitch Art workshops; and a “Noise Night” exhibit finale with performances curated by Alex Kmett.

    Glitch Art is an artistic phenomenon of internet culture. A glitch (in a visual and graphic sense) is a malfunction of a digital system, a computer error which can turn images into bizarre and colorful compositions. Images can be turned into sound or opened as word documents. You can change bytes in the code of a file to twist and distort it or you can strap magnets to a VCR and see what happens when you press play.

    Although Glitch Art’s roots go back into the 20th century, it’s a nascent artistic movement with a far flung, but significantly sized community centered around the Glitch Artists Collective with a Facebook following of more than 52,000 people. Over 300 individuals from Minneapolis, Hong Kong, Vienna, São Paulo, and across the world submitted in excess of 2,000 works to the open call. From these submissions, 41 still image artists and 12 video artists were selected to have their work featured. It is the initiative’s goal to foster a deep sense of community by bringing these digital denizens into the real world. The Glitch Art is Dead: Minneapolis exhibition aimed to deny its title, introducing the viewer to a wide spectrum of artwork that shows the vitality of the medium.

    Curated and organized by Aleksandra Pienkosz (Krakow), Zoe Stawska (Warsaw) and Miles Taylor (Minneapolis), the initiative began in 2015 with the *Glitch Art is Dead* exhibition in Kraków. The exhibit was hosted by Teatr Barakah in Krakow, Poland and ran from September until mid-October. An exhibition book, edited by Pienkosz and published by Hub Wydawniczy Rozdzielczosc Chleba, features artists from the first exhibition as well as discourse on glitch art and is set to be released on December 17th.

    Hosted by Gamut Gallery, the 2017 Minneapolis installment features an exhibition of more than 90 artists from around the world running March 11th-31st; a three-day weekend of Glitch Art workshops March 17th-19th; and a Noise Night exhibit finale on March 31st with performances curated by Alex Kmett.

    The Glitch community is centered around the Glitch Artists Collective with a Facebook following of about 52,000 people. It is the initiative’s goal to foster a deep sense of community by bringing these digital denizens into the real world by exhibiting emerging artists with established ones and to connect local artists with those based nationally and internationally. To this end, the curators are arranging for several artists from the UK, France, Poland, Croatia and across the U.S. to attend the exhibition and present at the workshop.
