THE ARTIST
Mark Amerika's work has exhibited internationally at venues such as the Whitney Museum, the Denver Art Museum, the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, and the Walker Art Center. In 2009-2010, The National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens, Greece, hosted Amerika’s comprehensive retrospective exhibition, UNREALTIME. In 2009, Amerika released Immobilité, often considered the first feature-length art film shot on a mobile phone. He is the author of many books including remixthebook (University of Minnesota Press, 2011 — remixthebook.com), META/DATA: A Digital Poetics (The MIT Press, 2007) and novels The Kafka Chronicles and Sexual Blood (both with FC2/University of Alabama). His transmedia art work, Museum of Glitch Aesthetics, was commissioned by the Abandon Normal Devices Festival in conjunction with the London 2012 Olympics. In March of 2017, Amerika was the first American artist to have a survey exhibition of digital artwork in Havana. His new book, remixthecontext, will be published by Routledge in fall 2017. Amerika was appointed Professor of Distinction at the University of Colorado Boulder, where he is the Founding Director of the Doctoral Program in Intermedia Art, Writing and Performance and a Professor of Art and Art History.
