Diamond Stingily    

Artist Focused on Racial and Feminine Identities

Diamond Stingily is an artist and poet. Stingily's art practice explores aspects of identity, iconography and mythology, and childhood.

Stingily's work explores various themes of racial identity and femininity, memory and childhood, iconography, surveillance and paranoia as well as freedom. Much of her work is in direct response to her "social and economic background" growing up in West Chicago.

Critics have reviewed her first two exhibitions favorably. Curator Johanna Fateman writes in Artforum that Diamond's work, "reflects on the normalization and replication of brutal scripts and systems using perfect, pervasive materials." California-based curator Hanna Girma notes that "Stingily courageously navigates between consolation and discomfort, personal and shared memory. Her work celebrates youthful perception, black creativity and resilience while simultaneously thrusting the viewer into their current disposition, with its fear of contact, normalized violence and ancestral hardship."

In 2018, Stingily was named to Forbes Magazine's 30 Under 30 Art & Style list.
