Dianna Frid makes objects and images that span a wide range of scales and media. These works take the form of artist books and collages, or they function as installations or as discrete two and three-dimensional pieces. Frids works are material responses to existing images, shapes and things in the world. In making objects, she stresses the relationship of two-dimensional representation to the three-dimensionality of sculpture and hybrid objects.
Frid received her MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2003 and her BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in1991. Selected fellowships and grants received include Artadia: The Fund for Art and Dialogue in 2004; The Harper-Schmidt Fellowship at The University of Chicago, 2003-2006; The Trustees Merit Scholarship at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 2001-2003; A Grant for Visual Arts from The Canada Council in 2001; and The CAAP Grant from The Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs in 2000. She has lectured at The Cranbrook Academy of Art, The Department of Fiber and Material Studies at School of the Art Institute of Chicago, The University of Wisconsin at Madison, and DePaul University in Chicago.
Frids one-person shows include 12 Releases at CROXHAPOX in Gent, Belgium; 12 X 12 / New Artists New Work at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago; Time and Distance and Bent, National and International Projects at PS1-MOMA in New York; and Crater and Transport at Julia Friedman Gallery, New York. Her publications include "B&B: an email exchange," with Joseph Grigely in The Air is Blue: Insights on Art and Architecture, Luis Barragan Revisited, edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist and "Elana Herzog: Four Projects for Spaces, 1996 to the Present," in Textile: The Journal of Cloth and Culture.
