Platform 101 is holding the first Glitch Video Art Group Exhibition in Iran, entitled Glitch: Pixel Language, curated by Mohammad-Ali Famori and Sadeq Majlesi, featuring 27 glitch artists for 11 weeks.

About

A group video art exhibition titled ‘Glitch Art: Pixel Language,’ curated by Mohammad-Ali Famori and Sadeq Majlesi, will open on December 25 at Bavan Gallery in Tehran and will continue through March 12. 

After holding the first group photo exhibition tour entitled ‘Definite Moment’ in 2018 in six galleries in Tehran and Isfahan, Platform 101, a nonprofit and independent art institution, prepared a plan to hold a glitch video art exhibition.

Speaking about the exhibition, Famori said that technological errors that are the product of defects in digital devices give us incomplete images. These incomplete and intertwined lines of video and audio make up the glitch art pixel and digital motifs. In the process of creating glitch work, on the one hand, the artist relies on the digital broadcaster as a medium, and on the other hand, there is artist, and the third side addresses the interpretation of the digital art by the audience.

Glitch is a genre in visual art that has the potential to become a tangible language for all human beings to reach a single concept of digital art.

In art, glitch is a discourse that confirms movement from the whole to the part and consequently from the part to the whole.

In this exhibition, 27 glitch artists create works to identify the value and identity of pixels, so that they can force the pixel language in our minds to reread.

During the 11-week exhibition, every Friday, the artworks of two artists will be exhibited for seven days.
