A visual artist and writer interested in the intersection of contemporary culture, critical practice and public space, Diane Roehm’s work has been featured in exhibitions, installations and events throughout the United States and Italy, and she is active in organizing community-driven cultural events in New York City.
Diane studied visual art and art history at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, completing undergraduate internships at Crown Point Press, Fraenkel Gallery, the Herndon Gallery, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Jones/Ginzel and TEVERETERNO. After earning her degree, she traveled with artist Kristin Jones to Rome to work onsite with TEVERETERNO, a nonprofit organization conceived and led by an international team of artists and architects, which produces cultural events that promote the potential of Rome’s Tiber River as an urban commons and site for contemporary art beyond the traditional confines of museum, gallery or concert hall.
Diane also manages Jones’ collaborative practice with artist Andrew Ginzel, where site-specific projects are created for the public realm, exploring time and perception in contemplative work aimed at magnifying a sense of place and present.
Freelance work has included conceptual development, studio assistance, video production, writing and editing, web design, and archives management for a wide array of artists and composers. She recently joined the production team for Sarah Sze: Triple Point, the United States Pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia.
Born in Sewanee, Tennessee, Diane makes her home in New York.
