Art & Art History
Voices: Diana Thater
1240 West Harrison Street
Diana Thater s (born 1962) video installations offer complex arrangements of multi-channel images and the tools of their display to actively address the history of video. Combining a number of subjects, such as narrative construction and the intersection of culture, nature, and technology, Thater s visually lush works challenge the viewer to reconsider their relationship with the natural world.
Thater studied art history at New York University before acquiring an MFA from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena in 1990. She has exhibited widely in group exhibitions throughout North America and Europe, including the Carnegie International; the Johannesburg Biennial; the Sydney Biennial; the Kwangju Biennial; and the Lyon Biennial. Solo exhibitions have been presented by the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Kunsthalle Basel, Switzerland; the Renaissance Society, Chicago; Zwirner & Wirth, New York; and 1301PE, Los Angeles. A collaborative project with T. Kelly Mason was included in the 2006 Whitney Biennial.
