Yasmine Nasser Diaz is a multidisciplinary artist who uses mixed media collage, immersive installation, and video to juxtapose disparate cultural references and to explore the connections between personal experience and larger social and political structures.  Born and raised in Chicago to parents from Yemen, Diaz is interested in complicated narratives of third-culture identity and their precarious invisibility/hyper-visibility. 

 

Yasmine is a recipient of the Harpo Visual Artists Grant and the California Community Foundation Visual Artist Fellowship and has works included in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The University of California Los Angeles, and the Arab American National Museum. Her work has been featured in HyperAllergic, Artsy, and Artillery Magazine. She lives and works in Los Angeles.
