Reception: Thursday, September 23, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

The MCAD MFA Program presents Glitch is the Soul in the Machine, an international traveling exhibition showcasing emergent forms of new media art that playfully reveal the way digital technologies influence our experience of everyday life.

This exhibition was curated by Mark Amerika, who suggests in his Glitch Ontology manifesto-performance, if “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 exhibition is traveling from it’s original installation at Winona State University in June 2021 as part of the annual International Digital Media and Arts Association (iDMAa) conference. Jurors included Dena Eber (Digital Arts, Bowling Green State University), Heejoo Kim (Digital Media and Design, University of Connecticut), Adriana Knouf (College of Arts, Media and Design, Northeastern University), Talan Memmott (Creative Digital Media, Winona State University), Ellen Mueller (Director, MFA Program, Minneapolis College of Art and Design), Élika Ortega (Spanish and Portuguese, University of Colorado, Boulder).
