Diane Severin Nguyen was born in 1990 in Carson City, CA and currently lives and works in New York City. The artist earned her BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2013 and her MFA from Bard University in 2020. Nguyen draws material and inspiration for her photography, video, and installation work from an expansive mix of sources including social media feeds, 20th century philosophical writings, and debris sourced from the streets of New York City. In the collision of these intentionally disparate materials the artist mimics the dissonance of online culture and questions old divides between popular and elite, real and fake, repellent and sympathetic.
