April 4th 2022 – April 14th 2022

Compton Goethals Art Gallery

OPENING RECEPTION APRIL 6th 5PM – 8:30PM

Exhibiting Artists:
Ryan Maleady, Gregg Béllon, Phyllis Lehrer, Ewan Tang, Sarah Cameron Sunde, Joshua Dumas, Tiffany Zorrilla, Jean Carla Rodea, Erica Shires, Wenjun Chen, Clarinda Mac Low, Adrian Jones, German Lavrovsky

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.

Good.

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.

Supported by a partnership between Works & Process and Dance Magazine Awards, choreographers Alethea Pace and Yin Yue, recipients of the 2021 Harkness Promise Awards, discuss their creative process with Joan Finkelstein, executive director of the Harkness Foundation for Dance.Prior to its May 2022 premiere at BAAD! The Bronx Academy of Arts & Dance, Alethea Pace shares highlights from Here goes the neighborhood . . ., a multimedia performance installation created in collaboration with Bronx community members. Anchored in the history of the Bronx, the work conjures memories born from both turmoil and resilience and reminds us of the wealth of knowledge we hold in our bodies, memories, and histories. It is an offering to the Bronx and an incitement to dream of radical visions for the future.

In preparation for her May 19 world premiere at BAM Fisher, Yin Yue opens her rehearsal space to an audience. Working with a newly formed group of seven dancers, she shares her narrative research and phrase-building process, offering an intimate look at the experience of making a dance on the first day of rehearsal.

Alethea Pace is a Bronx-based multidisciplinary choreographer and performer. A former Arthur Aviles Typical Theatre company member, her work has been supported by BAAD!, Dancing While Black, Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theater, New Dance Alliance, New York Live Arts, and the 92nd Street Y. She is committed to creating work in and with her community that is rooted in social justice, born out of resilience, and made in spite of the obstacles facing artists (and people) of color.

Yin Yue, the artistic director of YY Dance Company, has taught her signature FoCo Technique™ around the world. Her company has toured to Germany and China, and presented at SummerStage in New York, BAM Fisher, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival Inside Out, and many other venues in the United States. The company will present its spring season in May 2022. As a choreographer, Yue has received commissions from the Martha Graham Dance Company, Boston Ballet, Philadelphia Ballet, Limón Dance Company, Gibney Company, BalletX, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, Hubbard Street 2, and many others.

DIAP MFA Fall 2019 news

Posted in exhibition, participation, student work

October 10th – October 13th [DIAP] MFA fellow Eddie Shellman is showing his work in “Reverence+Sound+Movement”, an exhibition curated by Terry Bodde.

 

 

 


[DIAP] MFA fellow Marielis Garcia is showing “In the Fold” on October 10th and 11th.

In the Fold is a geometric abstraction through music, visuals and movement.
Joined by choreographer Marielis Garcia (MG DanceArts), sculptor Caleb Nussear and Jazz trombonist and composer Ryan Keberle contemplate nostalgia and dreaming through the study of sense and perception.


Congratulations to [DIAP] MFA alum Sarah Cameron Sunde for presenting her project “36.5 / A Durational Performance with the Sea” to the United Nations.


[DIAP] MFA alum Laura Schneider has a solo show opening at The Project Space at NYU Abu Dhabi.

Laura Schneider:
Thymesis
September 24th -October 7th
NYUAD, Project Space

The Project Space at NYU Abu Dhabi presents the works of faculty member and artist, Laura Schneider, in her solo exhibition, Thymesis, open to the public from September 24-October 7, 2019. The artist was inspired to title the exhibition Thymesis after learning about the medical condition, hyperthymesia, while reflecting on the role of autobiographical memory throughout her own work. “Hyperthymesia” derives from the Greek words hyper (“excessive”) and thymesis (“remembering”). People afflicted with hyperthymesia can remember every detail of their own life. Schneider reflects that “those of us without this condition perhaps forget more than we remember and are left to fill in the blanks.”

Thursday September 19th, [DIAP] MFA fellow Marielis Garcia is collaborating with choreographer Madeline Hollander in a performance at the Whitney Museum of Art. An article about the performance with quotes by Marielis Garcia has appeared in the NY Times.


Saturday September 21, 2019, 8:00pm – 9:30pm, [DIAP] MFA fellow Marielis Garcia together with Nicole von Arx, will present “Objective Bodies” at Judson Memorial Church – New York City. Choreographers Marielis Garcia and Nicole von Arx seek to question the neutrality of, or lack thereof, bodies in space.

To remain objective invites a sense of neutrality – can bodies of gender, color, or experience ever be neutral? Perhaps we do not want them to be.
Objective Bodies is a shared evening of choreography by Swiss artist Nicole von Arx and New York artist Marielis Garcia. Each artist will premiere two different dance works revolving around the social implications that directly affect the way we attend to, take notice of and develop within our own bodies.


[DIAP] MFA alums Jean Carla Rodea, Lionel Cruet and Emma Yi participate in The Syncope curated by Kathie Halfin || Bronx River Art Center || 1087 E. Tremont Ave, Bronx River Art Center Opening reception on September 14 from 6-9 pm. Performances start at 7 and screening on the rooftop at 8 pm.
