Dia Center for the Arts is a multi-disciplinary contemporary arts organization based in New York City. The name Dia, taken from the Greek word meaning "through," was chosen to suggest our role as the conduit or means for realizing extraordinary projects.
Molissa Fenley: LatitudesDia's fourth artist project for the web is by Molissa Fenley. Fenley's choreography and dance is marked by a highly personal movement vocabulary, inspired in part by ancient and southeast Asian sculptural artifacts. In Latitudes, Fenley explores these sources of inspiration in concert with a detailed examination of a suite of movements.
Juan Muñoz: A Place Called AbroadFor his exhibition at Dia, Juan Muñoz has transformed the gallery into a street-like environment. The residual spaces are inhabited by groups of sculptural figures which engage with each other in ways that transform the sites into highly charged arenas. Click here for an essay by the curator and other information about the exhibition, or here for a web project by the artist with views of the installation, the model used to make it, and other texts and images.
Susan Hiller: Dream ScreensHere is the third major artist project for Dia's web site. Susan Hiller is an artist known for works that explore the margins of consciousness through a variety of media. In this piece, Dream Screens, Hiller maps her long-standing interest in dream states onto the nebulous realm of the web, using interactive color fields and a soundtrack in six languages.
Komar & Melamid: Don't miss Komar & Melamid's first project for the web! Go here for an introduction to the project, or click here to jump straight to The Most Wanted Paintings. See the paintings that resulted from the artists' intrepretation of professional market research surveys about aesthetic preferences and taste in painting. While you're here, make art and web history by taking the web survey!
