Altmann’s work also extends beyond the fine art world, including roles as a musician, DJ, director, and ghost producer, and collaborations with the likes of Kingdom/Fade to Mind, DJ GC, Fatima Al Qadiri, Maluca Mala, and Mixpak. Her own work has been featured in publications including The FADER, DIS, and Art in America, and she has completed projects for The New Museum, Art Dubai, The Goethe Institute, and many others. Altmann’s first major solo exhibition, Xomia, occurred this year at Ellis King Gallery. Another solo project, Hitashya, will feature in the Biennial of the Americas at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver in July.
