Diana is an art historian who focuses on modern art from Latin America. She earned her M.A. in Art History from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University, and will be starting her Ph.D at Rutgers University in September 2019. Her academic writing focuses on transnational cultural exchanges between the Americas and Europe from the 1920s through the 1960s, artists’ constant self-exploration, and the fluidity of identity.
In 2017 she co-edited Vision Margin, the Tyler School of Art’s annual MFA thesis catalog. She has worked at Ileana Viteri Art Gallery in Quito, Ecuador, and has interned at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the departments of Government and External Affairs, and Contemporary Art. More recently, she assisted her MA advisor Mariola Alvarez on her forthcoming book New Geographies of Abstract Art in Postwar Latin America, co-edited along with Ana María Franco. Diana joined ISLAA as a Research Assistant in May 2018.
