In this talk, Los Angeles based artist Yasmine Diaz will speak about her experiences making work as an agnostic feminist of Muslim heritage in a post 9/11 era of xenophobia and anti-Muslim rhetoric. Her talk will center on a her 2017 piece, One Way or Another (college and hand-cut watercolor paper, 18 x 24)

Yasmine navigates overlapping tensions around religion, gender, and third-culture identity using personal archives, found imagery and various media on paper as well as installation. Born and raised in Chicago to parents who immigrated from the highlands of southern Yemen, her mixed media work often reflects personal histories of the opposing cultures she was raised within. She has exhibited and performed at spaces including the Brava Theater in San Francisco, the Torrance Art Museum, Charlie James Gallery, and Station Beirut. Diaz is a 2019 California Community Foundation Visual Artist Fellow with works included in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The University of California Los Angeles, and The Poetry Project Space in Berlin. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
