Kate Armstrong is a Vancouver-based writer, artist and independent curator. Her interdisciplinary practice merges networked media, written forms and urban experiences and engages with open forms of experimental narrative that bring poetics and computational function together in physical or network space. In the past this has taken a variety of forms including net art, psychogeography, social media platforms, drawings, and books.
Recent exhibitions include Pace Gallery (New York), Rhode Island School of Design Gallery (Rhode Island), Surrey Art Gallery (Surrey, Canada), Contemporary Art Centre (Vilnius, Lithuania), Psy-Geo-Conflux (New York), Western Front (Vancouver), Vancouver International Centre for Contemporary Asian Art (Centre A), ISEA 2006 (San Jose, California), ZeroOne San Jose: A Global Festival of Art on the Edge (San Jose, California), Yerba Buena Centre (San Francisco, California), Interactive Futures: The New Screen (Victoria, Canada), Prairie Art Gallery (Grande Prairie, Alberta), and Akbank Sanat (Istanbul, Turkey).
