GLITCH at RUA RED is an annual festival that brings together leading media and technology artists, curators, researchers, and artist groups with audiences to explore emerging and established contemporary cultural and critical issues that arise from artists intersection and investigations with digital technology. GLITCH was founded in 2011 and has gone from strength to strength ever since.
This year GLITCH & Run Computer, Run focus on the current economic, political and cultural factors that are shaping the Internet and the artistic responses to them through a series of exhibitions, seminars and a publication. The research will discuss and explore how the practice of the digital artist is in transition, not only with the growth of digital technologies, but also through the offline factors that continue to affect how the Internet as a creative platform is developed. Run Computer, Run takes place during GLITCH festival at RUA RED from May 24 – July 13.
