APRIL 2013 FUTURE MYTH @ 319 SCHOLES, New York
What’s the state of the modern myth? How do myths proliferate, what do we use to represent them, and what’s the cultural value of storytelling? FUTURE MYTH presents digital artists engaged in contemporary myth-making who are using the gallery as a way to navigate, define, and discuss the current landscape of mythology and its relevance in our technologically dependent lives.
APRIL 2013 COMMUNICATING THE ARCHIVE: SESSIONS, VITAL CONTENT: ALIENWARE
@ REGIONAL STATE ARCHIVES, Gothenburg
Biological and mythical language drenches the interfaces between us and today's technology and products, but what cultural logic lives behind an array of selected profile images, a meme on Tumblr, or a cluster of Google image search results? Artist Kari Altmann talks us through an exploration of content management, algorithms, brands, and current visual cultures which must contend with these structures, using examples from her own oeuvre and beyond. She will focus on the idea of vitality as it relates to identity and survival in today's informational ecosystem.
COMMUNICATING THE ARCHIVE: SESSIONS is a lecture series presented by the Regional State Archives in Gothenburg and the School of Design and Crafts, University of Gothenburg. Curated by Gluey-C.
NOVEMBER 2012 HEALTH @ TWELVE AROUND ONE, London
Kari Altmann, Joel Beach, Samuel Fouracre, Marlie Mul
When finally static, these images belie the haphazard route to the present they inhabit, and in order to remain healthy, they must constantly renegotiate the terms of their own reconfiguration. What is lost and what is gained remains part of the play, and also gets left behind as part of the process, allowing images to leap between reference points and settle amongst new terrain, whilst all the time remaining porous to changes in the environment and within their own physiology.
Curated by Majed Aslam
NOVEMBER 2012 STYLE IS THE TAILOR @ AMERICAN MEDIUM, New York
Kari Altmann, Benjamin Phelan, Travess Smalley, Borna Sammak
At a time when the flood or drought of Credit serves as the prevailing force determining the creation of form and object, we’ve forgotten that we are apples of the earth, blooming and dying free, and that our flesh is still here, holding up the geometry of faces better off bare.
Produced and hosted by American Medium

AUGUST 2012-ONGOING SOFT REVEAL of SMART MOBILITY @ 131 CHRYSTIE, New York
The object that exists in motion spans different points, relations and existences but always remains the same thing. Like the digital file, the bootlegged copy, the icon, or Capital, it reproduces, travels and accelerates, constantly negotiating the different supports that enable its movement. As it occupies these different spaces and forms it is always reconstituting itself. It doesn't have an autonomous singular existence; it is only ever activated within the network of nodes and channels of transportation.
Both a distributed process and an independent occurrence, it is like an expanded object ceaselessly circulating, assembling, and dispersing. To stop it would mean to break the whole process, infrastructure or chain that propagates and reproduces it.
The object in motion becomes the simultaneous obfuscation and revelation of the points that sustain it. It's both completely transparent and completely mediated. Transparent because it ignores the different instantiations and embodiments that require it to exist across a material infrastructure and mediated because of its dependency on these multiple parts to exist at all. It flows through networked channels, forgetting any idea of a singular autonomy.
Featuring recently updated versions of "Black Hole" and "Where Is the Blood?"
Installed with "Points in Space" by Merce Cunningham, "Made in 'Eaven" by Marck Leckey
PowerPoint is omnipresent. From bored boardrooms and continuing education seminars to military briefings at the Pentagon and in Kabul, with art fairs in between.

The R-U-In?s: Underground Economies exhibition focuses on different strata of value exchange, be it through outsourcing memes in online databases or the illicit aggregation of products into a black market of critical attitudes. The main purpose of the project is to extract the underlying mechanisms of trading and branding networks that parallel the mainstream apparatuses, both in the realm of artistic production and the ecology of the global market.

JULY 2010 TROLL, Envoy Enterprises, New York Curated by Keehnan Konyha and Jacob Gaboury
TROLL is a group exhibition that examines the act of trolling as a sexual, cultural, and ethical practice. To troll is to sift through image and text, filtering and re-contextualizing subject-significant objects; it is baiting and malicious comment made behind the anonymity of the Web, soliciting argument for the purpose of breakdown and chaos; to troll is sexual practice, to cruise for sex, to seek partners anonymous or otherwise.

MAY 2010 INDEX OF POTENTIAL for FULL OPERATIONAL TOOLBOX @ Miltiadou 21, Athens Curated by KERNEL
"R-U-In?S Catalogue #001"
The works presented in Full/Operational/Toolbox highlight and realize, each one on its own terms, ideas and creative strategies that concern the management of the artistic work primarily as "information''. The works, thus, set out new conditions for the access and distribution of culture and of the audience's participation. Exploring the dynamics and the status of these creative activities, Full/Operational/Toolbox aims at functioning as a platform for debate on ways of management of the cultural product in terms of directness and immediacy, as well as on the reconsideration of material and institutional processes and limitations.
