Screening and discussion with artist Diane Severin Nguyen

Join Art21 for a special screening and conversation with artist Diane Severin Nguyen.

Directed by Jessica Kingdon and Nathan Truesdell, the 2022 Oscar nominees for their film “Ascension,” “Diane Severin Nguyen’s Transfigurations” offers a look into the work and creative processes of the New York City-based artist.

“As a photographer, I feel like it’s my imperative to take in all of the trash of the world,” says Diane Severin Nguyen. “And I think I work from this psychic garbage.” Fingernails, karaoke YouTubers, grass jelly, make-up tutorials, anti-war anthems, and mass-produced trinkets all find themselves colliding in the work of the artist. Collecting the dust and detritus from our heads and our homes, Diane Severin Nguyen creates compelling and often mystifying photographs and videos that question divides between what is considered trashy or intellectual, organic or inorganic, alienating or disarming.

Following the screening, the artist will stay for a conversation and Q&A with audience members.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

The program begins at 7:00 p.m.

Admission is free, but advance registration is required.

This venue has a wheelchair-accessible entrance. American Sign Language interpretation is available by request with at least two weeks’ notice.
