Join us for a reception and artist talk with photographer Jamie Diamond, presented by Skidmore’s Summer Studio Art Program and the Tang Teaching Museum. Diamond, who is in residence on campus from June 20-25, is a photographer, performance, and video artist. Her work revolves around modes of exchange, intimacy and perception.
“I am interested in the intersection between fiction and representation, in deconstructing the photograph and challenging our perception as viewers. Through collaborations with strangers, mimes, professional actors and untrained outsider artists, I use recognizable photographic genres and role-play to make objects, construct events, and forge artificial histories and relationships for the camera, exploring the inherent fictions and complex perspectives of photography, and the conflation between the documentary and constructed tableaux genres.”

Jamie Diamond currently works as the Undergraduate Photography Coordinator in the Fine Arts Department at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA.
This event is free and open to the public.
