Yasmine Nasser Diaz’s solo exhibition reflects on coming-of-age nostalgia and Yemeni American girlhood. This exhibition features never before shown fiber etchings and a site-specific installation that is a continuation of her “Teenage Bedroom” series. Diaz addresses subjects familiar to many children of immigrants including code-switching, plural identities and conflicting loyalties. Diaz is an AANM 2020 Artist-in-Residence and Commissioned Artist.
