Daria Dorosh is an artist, educator, activist, and researcher with SMARTlab New Media Institute, where
she completed her Ph.D thesis, Patterning: The Informatics of Art and Fashion in 2007.

Her work integrates traditional art and fashion with digital media and experimental presentation.
Between 1974 and 2010, she has produced eighteen one-person art exhibitions.  In 2003 she
collaborated with Steve DiPaola of Simon Fraser University, BC, Canada, and Bruce Damer and Galen
Brandt of digitalspace.com to produce Ratava’s Line, an internet project for her students in fashion
design and media students at SFU to make an online game space with a fashion narrative and original
fashion designs worn by avatars in the game. A description of the event held at FIT, and reviews in WWD
and in the Chronicle of Higher Education are available at digitalspace.com

She studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology, NY, and at the Cooper Union School of Art and
Architecture, NY. She is an early feminist and co- founder of A.I.R. Gallery, NY, (1972) the first artist-
run gallery in the United States to show the work of women artists. She has taught fashion design at the
Fashion Institute of Technology, NY, since 1969 and taught fine art at Parsons the New School for Design,
NY, from 1976-1985.

In 2005 she received the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Creativity and Scholarship in teaching.

She is active in workshops, conferences and symposia as organizer and presenter. In 2011 she is a participant in Fashioning Self and the Environment: An Earth Day Open House at the Textile Arts Center,
NY. She lead Realizing your Projects | Building and Leveraging Hybrid Networks for Art Table’s 30th
Anniversary held at Sotheby's.  For fashion week she organized Re-made in America, a roundtable
discussion on sustainability and technology in fashion, and in 2010 she launched Fashion Lab in Process
with a presentation of re-made garments by young designers, at the American Folk Art Museum’s branch
gallery, NY.

In 2008, she initiated and participated in DIY Feminisms: from Pioneer to Punk to Post-digital at BMCC, NY, and Material A.I.R.: Substance & Process, at the DAC, NY. She presented “Follow the Pattern”, at the 2006 New Kind of Science Conference in Washington, DC, to demonstrate how art, fashion, and
science intersect through pattern.  In 2004, she organized Emerging Partnerships in Education and the Digital Industry for F.I.T.

In 2011, she is one of ten artists being honored by Art Table in their 30th Anniversary celebration to
acknowledge the transformative work of leading women and institutions in the visual arts and to recognize artists whose contributions to the field have impact beyond traditional studio practice.
