AVLGLITCH is a month-long 3 venue exhibition of juried works from an open call that brought submissions from near and far.
Glitch art is the aestheticization of digital or analog errors. This exhibition will focus on Glitch photography – experimentation through manipulation of an original image using creative post-photography processes. Glitch is rooted in transience and imperfection, and the recent influx of vernacular photography due to social media has brought a shift in visual aesthetics celebrating serendipity and mistakes as well as inspiring professional photographers to intentionally craft anomalies. Glitch explores this trend and looks forward to the future of the medium. Unexpected material exploration is encouraged, as are works made using “glitch” processes and other practices that have been sourced with (mostly) non-photographic media, such as catalog clippings, literary texts, 3D Models, Film Stills, Paintings, and Vector graphics, stills from video or animated GIFs. Tagging images on Instagram with #avlglitch is encouraged and tagged images will be projected and featured online throughout the exhibition.
