The Fylthy Trash Art Exhibition LA is a renegade event held near the dumpsters of the Southern California Institute of Architecture. What started off as two friends making trash art for fun quickly evolved into a deeper understanding of the movement and, from that, a desire to contribute more to it. An idea for a small parking lot art show quickly gained more interest and lead to an expanded team of 5 students driven to make the show as big as it can be in the short time we had to organize it. After a series of tweets, this small and local show turned into a wide reaching global Trash Art community effort comprised of established artists who have been around since the dawn of crypto art as well as artists who are just starting to make their mark now. In addition, numerous curators, collectors, and historians of trash art have been reaching out from all corners of the internet trying to help in what ever capacity they can. Many from the Trash Art movement are truly excited to present the Fylthy Trash Art Exhibition LA!

 

Trash Art is a new genre that uses existing media to create new works much in the same way collage and installation works took found or junk objects and incorporated them into a larger piece. A Short History of NFT Trash Art outlines its history of thought and progression.
When I think about Trash Art, it seems to break down into three essential parts – the movement, the meme, and the aesthetic. As Trash Art evolved, so did the three elements, allowing artists to pursue and perfect their skills and vision in different directions while continuing to add their take on what it means to be a Trash Artist.

The Movement

An emerging art movement centered around the themes of gatekeeping, censorship , copyleft, and onboarding new artists into the NFT space. Instead of a centralized club or a society, the movement is a conversation with people from all walks of life that adopt a decentralization ethos.

The Meme

Robness' 64-gallon Toter became the memetic symbol of the movement. It has spawned countless remixes, parodies, and homages. Eventually taking on a life of its own. You can also include memetic elements like potatoes, low-effort NFTs, rats as derivative symbols of the movement.

The Aesthetic

A consistent style has developed over time with combinations of glitch art, vaporwave, animation, appropriation, remixing, and collage. Elements of trash art make it into many of my pieces. But it is most prominent and used with explicit intent in The Weeds and Tune-In series.
