On the occasion of his exhibition at Dia Bridgehampton, Tony Cokes and artist Andros Zins-Browne discuss Cokes’s new work and their ongoing collaboration. On view through May 2024, Cokes’s moving-image installation engages with the material and sonic histories of the site, a firehouse–turned–First Baptist Church of Bridgehampton, now Dia Bridgehampton and the Dan Flavin Art Institute. In August 2023, Zins-Browne presented a day-long performance at Dia Bridgehampton, in dialogue with his remix of Cokes’s commission. During a discussion moderated by Jordan Carter, Dia curator and co–department head, Cokes and Zins-Browne will reflect on the process of remixing the work on view and the intersections of their respective responses to the site. Tony Cokes was born in Richmond, Virginia, in 1956. He received a BA from Goddard College, Vermont; an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond; and participated in the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, New York. Cokes has been the subject of several solo exhibitions, most recently of a major survey in Munich co-organized by the Haus der Kunst and Kunstverein München in 2022. Other recent solo exhibitions took place at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome (2021); Memorial Art Gallery, University of Rochester, New York (2021); and De Balie, Amsterdam (2022). Recent group exhibitions include Signals: How Video Transformed the World (2023) at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the 58th Carnegie International: Is it morning for you yet? (2022–23) at Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh; and the Whitney Biennial 2022: Quiet as It’s Kept (2022) at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. He is a professor in the Department of Modern Culture and Media at Brown University, in Providence, Rhode Island. Cokes lives in Providence. Andros Zins-Browne, born in New York in 1981, works at the intersection of performance and dance. His work extends choreographic notions into encounters with dancers, nondancers, singers, objects, and texts. Zins-Browne refers to his works made in response to other visual artworks as remixes. His past remixes include The Tony Cokes Remixes, 10th Berlin Biennale (2018); See-Saw by Simone Forti, Museum of Modern Art, New York (2019); and Jérôme Bel, 1995, 2020, KADIST, Paris, in collaboration with e-flux (2020). Since 2016, his solo performance Already Unmade has been presented at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; Lafayette Anticipations, Fondation Galeries Lafayette, Paris; Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. He is a contributor to Dance History(s): Imagination as a Form of Study (2023). Zins-Browne lives in New York. Dia Chelsea TURE DD/MM/YYYY A Conversation with Tony Cokes and Andros Zins-Browne

16/03/2024 10:30 16/03/2024 12:00 Europe/London Earth-Body with Bel Falleiros Event detailsSaturday, March 16, 20242–4 pm Dia Chelsea 537 West 22nd StreetNew York, New York Free. Spaces are limited; registration opens Saturday, March 2.   Try mixing what you think is you with the earth. Until the earth speaks to you. She speaks. And your body will listen.—Ailton Krenak Artist Bel Falleiros’s Soil Sessions program, Earth-Body, is inspired by the caring gesture of Delcy Morelos’s El Abrazo (2023) and the lessons of Brazilian indigenous philosopher Ailton Krenak, while drawing on her own practice of creating spaces for grounding and nurturing. Within an intimate and immersive soil-filled environment, Falleiros utilizes scents from Amazonian plants, her own ceramic works, and foraged natural materials to guide participants through a series of multisensory, experiential meditations. These meditations will activate the body through direct engagement with soil, breath, sound, and image in a ritualistic process, extending Morelos’s invitation to “make time to stop and feel.” In Earth-Body, Falleiros encourages us to trust our innate knowledge of the natural world and renew our relationship to it—its sounds and silences, textures and matter, and smell and presence. Ultimately, can we remember that we, too, are earth?   Participants will be asked to engage with organic materials during the program. If you have questions or concerns about allergies, please contact info@diaart.org. Bel Falleiros is a Brazilian artist whose practice focuses on how contemporary constructed landscapes (mis)represent the diverse layers of presence that constitute a place and how that affects those who inhabit them. In 2014, she had her first solo show at CAIXA Cultural São Paulo and first residency at the Instituto Sacatar in Bahia, Brazil. Since arriving in the U.S., she has worked to create spaces for grounding and connecting people, stories, nature, and place, at Pecos National Historical Park, New Mexico (2016); Burnside Farm, Detroit (2017); Santa Fe Art Institute’s Equal Justice Residency, in collaboration with Tewa Women United, New Mexico (2018); Socrates Sculpture Park, Queens (2020); The Border Project, Brooklyn (2021); and 37° Panorama da Arte Brasileira, Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo (2022). She was a More Art Engaging Artists Fellow (2021) and the artist-in-residence for the Dia Teens program (2021–22). Beyond her studio practice, she participates in collaborative projects across the Americas connecting art, education, and autonomous thinking. About the program series In conjunction with Delcy Morelos: El abrazo, Dia presents Soil Sessions, an iterative series of interdisciplinary activations, poetic responses to, discursive reflections on, and embodied engagements with earth as subject and material in Morelos’s work. These public programs, presented monthly throughout the run of the exhibition, invite sustained engagement with the commission through a variety of lenses.

27/03/2024 00:00 27/03/2024 23:45 Europe/London A Conversation with Sara Zewde and Frida Escobedo Event detailsWednesday, March 27, 20246:30 pm  Dia Chelsea 537 West 22nd StreetNew York, New York Free; register for the event here. Join us for a conversation with landscape architect Sara Zewde and architect Frida Escobedo, two dynamic creatives transforming art institutions in New York and beyond. Following an introduction by Dia’s Nathalie de Gunzburg Director Jessica Morgan, Zewde and Escobedo will engage in dialogue with Deputy Director of Program Humberto Moro. Sara Zewde is the founding principal of Studio Zewde, a New York–based design firm practicing landscape architecture, urbanism, and public art. Listed in Architectural Digest’s AD100 and recipients of the Emerging Voice award from the Architectural League of New York, the firm is celebrated for its design methods that sync culture, ecology, and craft. Zewde is also an Assistant Professor in Practice of Landscape Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design, New Haven, and is currently writing a book on her research on Frederick Law Olmsted's journeys through the Slave South. Zewde holds a master’s degree in landscape architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design; a master’s in city planning from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge; and a bachelor’s in sociology and statistics from Boston University.    Frida Escobedo established her eponymous studio in Mexico City in 2006. The studio’s reputation—initially built on the strength of a series of competition-winning projects in her native country—has achieved global scope in 2018, when she received the prestigious appointment to design the annual Serpentine Pavilion in London’s Kensington Gardens, becoming the youngest architect to that date to undertake the project. Escobedo is the recipient of numerous accolades, including the Architectural League of New York’s Young Architects’ Forum award (2009), Ibero-American Architecture and Urbanism Biennial prize (2014), the Architectural Review Emerging award (2016), and Architectural League of New York’s Emerging Voices award (2017). Most recently, the Créateurs Design Association & Awards has named Escobedo as the recipient of Le Prix Charlotte Perriand for 2024.

The event is presented on the occasion of Dia and Printer Matter’s partnership on the forthcoming NY Art Book Fair, held from April 26 to 28, 2024. Dia is once again hosting the book fair’s Classroom Series. Full schedule of events to be announced. Tiffany Sia is an artist, filmmaker, and writer who was born in Hong Kong.

In 2008, Dia Beacon presented a commission by Lê consisting of 22 photographs of a basalt quarry located 10 miles up the Hudson River from the museum. Lê’s photographs drew on the traditions of landscape painters of the Hudson River School and of landscape photographers from the 1960s included in Dia’s collection, and represented images that were not strictly of the documentary genre but rather were informed by a historical and cultural understanding of the region. She has been included in numerous group exhibitions at venues including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (2001); Tate Modern, London (2014); and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2015).
