Curated by Timur Si-Qin. "Extracting a parallel instance of the work as a three-dimensional representation of geometric data, Exhibition One offers an opportunity to present an alternate framework that posits the questions: Where does an artwork stop and its documentation begin? What is the function of a prospective image that is decisively not-a-model?" [1]
  • Free, New Museum, New York City, 20 Oct 2010-23 Jan 2011. Works by 22 artists: Liz Deschenes, Aleksandra Domanovic, Lizzie Fitch, Martijn Hendriks, Joel Holmberg, David Horvitz, Lars Laumann, Andrea Longacre-White, Kristin Lucas, Jill Magid, Takeshi Murata, Hanne Mugaas, Rashaad Newsome, Lisa Oppenheim, Trevor Paglen, Seth Price, Ryan Trecartin and David Karp, Jon Rafman, Clunie Reid, Amanda Ross-Ho, Alexandre Singh, Harm van den Dorpel. Curated by Lauren Cornell. "“Free” explores how the internet has fundamentally changed our landscape of information and our notion of public space. ... The artist Seth Price's essay “Dispersion” serves as touchstone for this exhibition." Interview with curator (Hyperallergic). Review: Rosenberg (NYT). [2] [3]


  • Post Internet Survival Guide, Future Gallery/Gentili Apri, Berlin, 28 Jan-6 Feb 2011. Works by Lorenzo Bernet & Yannic Joray, Sam Hammocks, Martin Kohout, Oliver Laric, Gene McHugh, Christian Oldham, Aude Pariset, Tabor Robak, Timur Si-Qin, Micah Shippa, Kate Steciew, Damon Zucconi. Curated by Katja Novitskova and Michael Ruiz. [4] [5]
  • Stone Sky Over Thingworld, Bitforms Gallery, New York City, 2 Jun-29 Jul 2011. Works by Michelle Ceja, Brenna Murphy, Jon Rafman, Artie Vierkant. Curated by Claudia Hart. "The relatedness of style and discourse [of these artists] emerges from ... their educations, the function of the Internet as a system of distribution and communication, – and ultimately, their shared attitudes and digital strategies."
  • Land Art For A New Generation, Showroom MAMA, Rotterdam, 18 Jun-7 Aug 2011. Works by Aram Bartholl, Artie Vierkant, Coralie Vogelaar & Teun Castelein, Dennis de Bel, Jeremy Wood, JODI, Juliette Bonneviot, Kari Altmann, Constant Dullaart. "The starting point for the project is the fact that the analog and digital are now so closely interwoven. ... The exhibition centers on a generation of artists dealing with themes such as (digital) decay and the continuous processing of vast amounts of information. They all share an interest in the creation of new databases at the interface of the physical object and immaterial digital culture."
  • Grouped Show, Tanya Leighton Gallery, Berlin, 16 Jul-20 Aug 2011. Works by Nicolas Ceccaldi, Aleksandra Domanovic, Yngve Holen, Keller/Kosmas, Oliver Laric, Marlie Mul, Timur Si-Qin. Selected by Robert O. Fitzpatrick. "The artists have worked together to place their work atop of, directly aside, or obtrusively in front of one another. ... These 'object hybrids' confront how the status quo methodology for curating group exhibitions (via fixed positions in physical display) is confronted by near-instantaneous peer-to-peer sharing of image, text, media and knowledge content between artists." Reviews: McGarry (Artforum), Sanchez (Artforum).

  • New Jpegs, Johan Berggren Gallery, Malmö, 23 Jul-20 Aug 2011. Works by Chris Coy, Parker Ito, Jon Rafman, Ben Schumacher, Artie Vierkant. Curated by Parker Ito. "For this generation [of image-makers] traditional boundaries between object, action, and documentation has fully dissolved, leading to a set of working methods that can be seen as truly post-medium. ... The works exist equally as objects in gallery space and images in circulation." [6] [7]
  • The Greater Cloud, NIMk, Amsterdam, 10 Dec 2011-5 Feb 2012.

  • Image Object, Foxy Production, New York City, 1 Jun-20 Jul 2012. Works by Andrea Longacre-White, Travess Smalley, Kate Steciw, Artie Vierkant. "The exhibition considers the relationship between images and objects in the age of digital media. ... With visual content transposed and modified across digital platforms, notions of what an artwork can be are in flux, not unlike the way personal identities are shape-shifting across social networks."

Organised by Quentin Bajac, Roxana Marcoci, and Lucy Gallun. "Probing the effects of an image-based post-Internet reality, the exhibition examines various ways of experiencing the world: through images that are born digitally, made with scanners or lenses in the studio or the real world, presented as still or moving pictures, distributed as zines, morphed into three-dimensional objects, or remixed online. Its title refers to the Internet as a vortex of images, a site of piracy, and a system of networks." Reviews: NYT, Woodward (WSJ], Wolukau-Wanambwa (Aperture). Interview with curator. [10]
