Curatorial Statement

Uncanny Alley is a metonym that blends Masahiro Mori’s phenomenon of the “Uncanny Valley” with New York City’s technological hub, a neighborhood known as “Silicon Alley.” The uncanny valley is the dip in a plotted graph of viewer response to increased realism; near-realism most often causes an eerie sensation. Digital representations of our world are often blurred with that of the analog, and Uncanny Alley hopes to invoke a bizarre sense of what is reality.


Uncanny Alley is curated by the Spring 2018 NMA Capstone class's student artists Emmanuel Arabit, Jack Bibi, Junlin Zhang, Mehraj Sinha, Vince Parulan, Ashley Zhang, Ezekiel Williams, Jordan La, Maria Alexander, Taishi Ishida, Cheddie Wildman, Hamza Saab, Jorgelina Alba, Misael Jimenez, Nkosi Bourne, Sabrina Binte, Alejandro Canon, Andre Navarra, Jason Huang, Lewis Diep, and Sharon Moy in the Department of Fine and Performing Arts in the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences at Baruch College. The exhibition is made possible by support from the Baruch Computing and Technology Center (BCTC) and the Newman Library.
