Nowadays we experience the ephemeral aesthetics of images, lighting up and evaporating, the flow of a rhythm marked by consumers. Within, error is not failure; it’s a condition and an opportunity.
In the digital world, sudden errors, which don’t affect the performance but are visually evident, are known as glitches. An unexpected aspect which users must prepare themselves for. In the world of fashion and digital art, the aesthetic of the glitch calling back to the 1990s has been retaken in order to create something new, #glitchart and #vaporwave. Representing the form in which our era values the creative possibilities of accidents, in which we adjust ourselves to the visually unforeseen, to fail without failure.
Graffiti and other expression of urban art express the creativity found amidst the urban chaos. They adept themselves to the conditions around them, the coarseness of the mural to which the paint drips, the police which chase them, the reduction of the outside which ultimately becomes incorporated into art. All these things, at their very essence are urban glitches, visuals that confounds us and our relationship with both the metropolis and it’s inhabitants.
By creating a new space in the museum for this kind of visual expression, we raise in importance the every-day language of the image and the reflection on it’s meanings, use and forms in which art, the city, design, fashion and the digital world all come together as one.
