Yasmine Nasser Diaz is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice draws from nuanced, discordant, and evolving concepts of culture, class, gender, religion, and family. She uses mixed media collage, photo-based fiber etching, immersive installation, and video to explore connections between personal experience and larger social and political structures. Diaz is interested in complex narratives of third-culture identity, their precarious invisibility/hyper-visibility, and the friction often experienced between the individual and the collective.
Yasmine has been the recipient of awards and residencies including the Harpo Visual Artists Grant, the California Community Foundation Visual Artist Fellowship, the Marble House Residency in Dorset, VT; and the University of Michigan Efroymson Visiting Artist Residency in Arbor, MI. Her works are included in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Arab American National Museum, and the University of California, Los Angeles and have been featured in Hyperallergic, PBS Newshour, Artnet, and Artillery Magazine. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
