Fall 2022 Visiting Artist Colloquium
Wednesday, September 21, 2022
Erika Diamond is a textile-focused visual artist, curator, and educator. Diamond’s work addresses the vital and fleeting qualities of human contact. It investigates the possibility of immortality, the commemoration of touch, and the thresholds between people. It reveals the vulnerability and self-preservation negotiated during human interaction. Referencing skin, defense mechanisms, and safety procedures, her work questions the fragility and resilience of both the human body and our connections.
