Event Description

In “Wildest Dreams” Zeinab Diomande explores Black womanhood through vulnerable self-portraits in her inventive multimedia works. Diomande challenges monolithic stereotypes placed on the Black community by creating limitless figures in her dream-like artworks. Through high-contrasting colors and vibrating patterns, these celebratory and electric works create a childlike universe for her characters to interact within and shape their reality.

Diomande is an Ivorian-American multimedia artist based in Philadelphia. She recently earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fine Arts Painting and Drawing from the University of the Arts. Diomande has exhibited in various cities around the world including New York City, Philadelphia, London, Chicago, West Hollywood, and more. She was awarded the Mural Arts Fellowship for Black Artists and was a finalist for the 2021 AXA Art Prize.
