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.

Sara Greenberger Rafferty has exhibited widely since 2001, including solo exhibitions at MoMA PS1, New York; The Kitchen, New York; Eli Marsh Gallery at Amherst College, Massachusetts; Fine Arts Center Gallery at University of Arkansas; and a commissioned sculpture for the Public Art Fund. Gloves Off, the first traveling survey of her work with accompanying fully illustrated catalogue published by SUNY Press, completed a three-venue tour at the end of 2017.
The artist was included in the 2014 Whitney Biennial and the 2014 Hammer Biennial, as part of Public Fiction’s programming, in addition to group shows at the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, Oregon; Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, California; and The Jewish Museum, New York, among many others.

The artist will be present via Zoom
This new performance is especially poignant in these times as I am a.) trying to understand performance, even if I can’t share a space with my audience, b.) looking at the fragility of presence via digital capture and c.) embracing the beautiful and harrowing stuckness we are all experiencing.
here, then & now originally set out to describe how traditional documentation both illuminates and limits performative works. Through the process of creation, two fundamental questions emerged: what is a digital dance performance and can it invite a sense of kinesthetic awareness in its viewers? This work aims to explore the complexities of performance, attempts to document a happening and it’s inevitable unrepeatable-ness, and also asks the question: where does the artwork exist?
Please join me next week, if you can.
I am experiencing sadness, empathetic compassion for many loved ones and finding joy in the smallest of pleasures; I hope you are finding peace, support and inspiration.
May 6th, at 7pm
