The idea for the exhibition came while thinking about an expansion from the singular to the multiple and the change in perspective this brings. The placement of the two human eyes, as close as this pair is, enables us to perceive depth which in turn allows us to provide our extensions with the information needed to reach out and grab our phones with a pretty high probability. Many new smartphones have multiple lenses to capture depth as well, but these phones don’t have built-in extensions yet, they can’t grab another phone.


Otherwise this could become an endless grab.


The exhibition DIAP++,  == print “pairs.mp4”==  shows pairs.

Pairings of artists currently in the Digital & Interdisciplinary Art Practice  [DIAP] MFA Program and artists who graduated from it. There are pairs of works that are opposite each other, next to each other, relate to each other, among each other and without one another. Together they create new perspectives.

Please join the Digital and Interdisciplinary Arts Practice program for their Fall 2020 Open Studios. Artists that are currently attending the program will be available to speak about their current research and studio practice.

The event will coincide with the opening of a web exhibition that documents how each artist in the program has shifted their practice in the current paradigm.


The [DIAP] program is a graduate program in studio art practice in the Art Department at the City College of New York. The [DIAP] MFA is a research-oriented community in which students engage with aspects related to digital media art. The program’s central focus is a utilization and critical engagement of digital media that can lead to research into areas as diverse as interactive sculpture, movement, performance, cyber gender, non-narrative motion graphics, photography, online privacy, online/offline interventions, printing, spatial mapping, drawing, digital cultures, painting or digital fabrication and is supportive of different models of individual or collaborative art practice.

The Other Utopias – an exhibition curated by DIAP fellows

The Other Utopias

Posted in anouncements, exhibition


Curated by Diana Guerra and Emily Malave

Arpi Adamyan, OlaRonke Akinmowo, Daniel Aros, Camille Breslin, Zoe Brice, Heeseo Choi, Jazzmint Dash, Marielis Garcia, Kathleen Granados, Red Sagalow & Kiyomi Taylor
February 20th – March 5th, 2020

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 20th, 2020 / 5:30 – 7:30 PM
Location: The Cohen Library Archives Gallery
Morris R. Cohen Library, 5th floor. North Academic Center (NAC) Room 5/301. 160 Convent Ave, New York, NY 10031

THE OTHER UTOPIAS is a group exhibition curated by Diana Guerra and Emily Malave and features artists from The City College of New York, Hunter College, Parsons School of Design, New York University and Columbia University.

THE OTHER UTOPIAS envisions an otherworldly material and immaterial outlook. As multiple discourses and identities arise from the past, present, and future we weave together the work of artists who take marginalized sources of knowledge from ancient and contemporary scripts, and reproduce a Utopian outcome. When we look for art, we are looking for something that magically ignites our physical senses. Not only does it invoke thought, but we perceive the artist as the caster of a spell. We consider identity as multiple and acknowledge its possibilities of transformation and diverse manifestation. The inclusivity present in this exhibition is in the form of photography, video, painting, installation, mixed-media and animation.

THE OTHER UTOPIAS will precede the ‘CCNY Women Make Art’ show that is organized every year by the Archives & Special Collections as part of the Women’s History Month. Gallery hours are Monday to Friday 9:30 – 5:30PM. For additional information please contact Sydney Van Nort, Archivist and Assistant Professor, svannort@ccny.cuny.edu; Diana Guerra, dianaguerra14@gmail.com; or Emily Malave, emilymalave@gmail.com.


Diana Guerra and Emily Malave are MFA candidates in Digital and Interdisciplinary Art Practice (DIAP) at The City College of New York – CUNY.
