Diana Fridd,

Dianna Frid's work includes drawing, sculpture, installation, and artist’s books. Her works are both corporeal and philosophical reflections on the ways in which materials—physical and lexical—produce aesthetic and contemplative experiences and, by doing so, shape our sense of reality. Frid has received major awards from the Canada Council of the Arts and the Artadia Foundation. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally at institutions such as PS1-MOMA, in New York, the Drawing Center in New York City, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and the Neues Kunstforum in Cologne. Her work has been recently exhibited at Bravin Lee Programs in New York, and is housed in public collections such as the Art Institute of Chicago and the Cleveland Clinic. Dianna Frid was born in Mexico City and migrated to Canada with her family when she was a teenager. She currently lives in Chicago where she teaches in the School of Art and Art History at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  In addition to her studio work, Frid started to make artist’s books in 1993 in Vancouver, and has used “The Artery Archives” as her imprint.
