Domenico Barra is Italian artist working in the field of digital art and member of the internetional art movement known as dirty new media. The critical, tactical and analytical approach to new technologies takes shape in an artistic production that exploits the “glitch” as raw material but also as a narrative line to address different topics such as privacy, body, memory, identity, all influenced and conditioned by new technologies and the industry that controls its development and processes. His works have been published on various sites and magazines such as The Creators Project, Motherboard, Bullet Magazine, Hyperallergic, Art F City and Digicult. He took part in several curatorial projects and his projects were exhibited internationally, at the DAM Gallery in Berlin, at the Media Center in New York, at Galerie Charlot in Paris and in Italy at the Link Art Center in Brescia, at the Wrong Biennale, just to name a few. He directed the organization of the first glitch art show in Italy, Tactical Glitches, curated by Rosa Menkman and Nick Briz. The artist has also collaborated with “The Wrong” – New Digital Art Biennale”.
Dom was a visiting artist at SAIC in Chicago in April 2016 for RE:MESH.WWWERK/s series curated by jonCates.
