DiMoDA 4.0: Dis/Location
Opening Reception: Oct. 6th, 4-7 PM
On view: Oct 6-28th
DiMoDA, conceived in 2013 by Alfredo Salazar-Caro and William Robertson, is a pioneering virtual institution, dedicated to commissioning and exhibiting cutting edge VR artworks. DiMoDA 4.0, curated by Christiane Paul (Professor of Media Studies at the New School and Adjunct Curator of Digital Art at the Whitney Museum of American Art), comprises three artworks — by artists Banz & Bowinkel, Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga, and Tamiko Thiel — addressing the theme of Dis/Location, the feeling of displacement from or disturbance of a proper, original, or usual place that has become a defining experience of our time. Prof. Miranda’s VR work “Desplazados” 2020 is a wandering neighborhood application set amongst 19th century tenement buildings on cobblestone streets and inhabited by rats and pigeons. As the user explores the environment, they encounter disembodied voices sharing observations and tales regarding urban gentrification.
This exhibition is facilitated by Prof. Frank Wang Yefeng.
