MCA: Internet Superheroes: Art and Technology

FREE for Illinois residents

Share your glitch art with others or come to observe the artistic chaos. Expect to see a bit of everything; executable/artware, digital poetry, animated gifs, data-bent-psychedelia and the retro-nostalgia of pixel art. Glitch enthusiasts are invited to physically bring their error-prone data or upload their corrupted, hacked, or otherwise mis-haped files via 0P3NR3P0.NET. This event is organized in collaboration with Nick Briz, an artist currently based in Chicago.

Nick Briz is a new-media artist, educator, and organizer whose work has been shown internationally at festivals and institutions, including the FILE Media Arts Festival (Rio de Janeiro, BR); Miami Art Basel; the European Media Arts Festival (Osnabruek, DE); the Images Festival (Toronto, CA). He has lectured and organized events at numerous international institutions including STEIM (Amsterdam, NL) and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His work is distributed through Video Out Distribution (Vancouver, CA) as well as openly and freely on the web.
