Diana Palermo (b. 1987, they/them) is a visual artist who works in printmaking, fiber, and photo processes. Palermo’s work is fueled by personal experiences growing up queer in a culture governed by Catholic morality. Palermo confronts the norms and acceptable levels of gender and sexual expression. They break down and rebuild systems and structures both conceptually and visually, emboldening the viewer to own their nuanced narratives, their bodies, their voices, and their sexuality.
