Calle de Nuria, 93, 6G, 28035 Madrid, Spain
The Medialab Prado cultural center joins MMMAD Festival with a new edition of ‘Programa la Plaza’, an open call that invites the entire digital art community to submit their proposals to exhibit visual ‘sketches’, programmed for the digital façade of Medialab Prado. With the collaboration of Creative Coding Madrid.
Theme: Glitches and Alterations
The glitch and error are part of digital creation. From programming errors to visual artifacts generated during image transmission, thee glitch constitutes a digital aesthetic that tries to generate tension on the clean image. The Medialab screen has physical glitches. Like any architectural element, it is affected by the passage of time. Many of its LED bulbs have died, and thus remain off or showing fixed or random colors. This call seeks pieces of digital art that work from glitch as aesthetics and concept. Taking advantage of the fact that the support itself generates a first approach towards error in the image, we invite artists to program the square with pieces that radicalize and dialogue with these new digital natures.
How does it work?
– Design and program your project on the programalaplaza platform (http://programalaplaza.medialab-prado.es/)
– When ready, send it before May 23, 2021

A jury made up of a member of MMMAD, a member of Creative Coding Madrid and a member of Medialab Prado will select the best proposals received.
