Internet Trash is a group exhibition featuring new work by Anthony Barron, Wilson Butterworth, Andrew Shuta, and Alex Von Bergen.

Trash is likely the most prolific kind of content online, and it comes in many different forms. An adorable cat video makes one feel all fuzzy inside, sites like Silk Road provide a route to a quasi-physical black market, and comments sections in popular blog posts are a slew of polarized opinions. Each of the artists included here use the idea of internet waste as a starting point for their diverse agendas. Webcams look back on themselves, text is copied and reformatted, and objects become an afterthought. In the midst of all the activity and circulation online, trash is bound to accumulate. Internet Trash can be seen as a recycling program enacted to deal with this mess.
