Major Exhibition in Europe in Fall 2009

In October 2009, I will be installing a rather large collection of some of my recent work and some older ones too as part of a comprehensive solo exhibition at the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens, Greece. We are still working out the details of what works will make the final cut, but since we'll have two floors and a media lounge to work with, it should be amazing.

The show is being curated by Daphne Dragona who recently curated an excellent online show entitled "Tag ties and affective spies: a critical approach on the social media of our times." I love the design interface, curation, and essays. It's really the perfect interface for an online exhibition that highlights art within a social networking context. As Daphne writes, "By exploring the functioning modes of the social networks and the ways users interact within them, a new form of artistic practice is being formed that comments, criticizes and subverts the networks’ structures by altering their semiology and formalism."

The National Museum of Contemporary Art, under the direction of Anna Kaftesi, has been successfully developing a very unique exhibition program by remixing conceptual art with net art and video art (Joseph Kosuth, YHCHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES and now Shirin Neshat, for example). "Tagties" takes it to another level.
