Dianna Frid in conversation with Sergio A. Aguillón-MataNovember 4, 2023
Please join us for a conversation with artist Dianna Frid and curator Sergio A. Aguillón-Mata in The Carnegie Galleries.
Dianna Frid works at the intersection of material texts and textiles. Her artist’s books and mixed-media works make visible the tactile manifestations of language. Frid’s work is currently on view at The Carnegie in Exhibition X: An Utterly Incomplete Examination of Collage in Contemporary Art.
Concurrently, she is featured in a 2-person exhibition at The Art Academy of Cincinnati (AAC). The AAC show, Falling Into Language, curated by Sergio Aguillón-Mata, will be on view from November 3 to December 1.
Exhibition X: An Utterly Incomplete Examination of Collage in Contemporary Art
Exhibition X is a loose examination of collage strategies and techniques across a range of media. Rather than organizing the exhibition from a particular thematic point of view, the curators opted for a messier, open-ended approach to bringing work together under one building. The exhibition itself adopts a collage strategy to the overall process of assembling an exhibition by piecing together elements that may seem disparate but create a balanced whole. Collage is often a pragmatic process, grabbing elements at hand to create unexpected images, a quick technique to upend the more formal elements of Fine Art. The strategies of collage are evident across multiple media and art-making communities since the early parts of the 20th Century. Current trends in collage both embrace digital processes and signal a return to handmade objects. A thing versus a file suggesting a thing. Exhibition X leans into physicality, celebrating the objectness of the object. This is what emerges from artists pasting and assembling pieces of this and elements of that into something that resembles a whole idea.
