Join us for a conversation with landscape architect Sara Zewde and architect Frida Escobedo, two dynamic creatives transforming art institutions in New York and beyond. Following an introduction by Dia’s Nathalie de Gunzburg Director Jessica Morgan, Zewde and Escobedo will engage in dialogue with Deputy Director of Program Humberto Moro. Sara Zewde is the founding principal of Studio Zewde, a New York–based design firm practicing landscape architecture, urbanism, and public art. Listed in Architectural Digest’s AD100 and recipients of the Emerging Voice award from the Architectural League of New York, the firm is celebrated for its design methods that sync culture, ecology, and craft. Zewde is also an Assistant Professor in Practice of Landscape Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design, New Haven, and is currently writing a book on her research on Frederick Law Olmsted's journeys through the Slave South. Zewde holds a master’s degree in landscape architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design; a master’s in city planning from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge; and a bachelor’s in sociology and statistics from Boston University.    Frida Escobedo established her eponymous studio in Mexico City in 2006. The studio’s reputation—initially built on the strength of a series of competition-winning projects in her native country—has achieved global scope in 2018, when she received the prestigious appointment to design the annual Serpentine Pavilion in London’s Kensington Gardens, becoming the youngest architect to that date to undertake the project. Escobedo is the recipient of numerous accolades, including the Architectural League of New York’s Young Architects’ Forum award (2009), Ibero-American Architecture and Urbanism Biennial prize (2014), the Architectural Review Emerging award (2016), and Architectural League of New York’s Emerging Voices award (2017). Most recently, the Créateurs Design Association & Awards has named Escobedo as the recipient of Le Prix Charlotte Perriand for 2024.

In 2022, as part of Dia’s Artists on Artists Lecture Series, Sia delivered a lecture on Lê’s series Small Wars (1999–2002) and realized a filmic montage from the photographs that comprise it. The event is presented on the occasion of Dia and Printer Matter’s partnership on the forthcoming NY Art Book Fair, held from April 26 to 28, 2024. Dia is once again hosting the book fair’s Classroom Series. Full schedule of events to be announced. Tiffany Sia is an artist, filmmaker, and writer who was born in Hong Kong. She earned a BA in film studies and Asian studies from Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, in 2010. Sia has directed several experimental short films, including Never Rest/Unrest (2020), Do Not Circulate (2021), and What Rules the Invisible (2022). Solo exhibitions of her work have been held at Artists Space, New York (2021); FELIX GAUDLITZ, Vienna (2022); and ahj.pm, Germany (2023). Her work has been presented in international group exhibitions at venues including the Kunstverein Düsseldorf; Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Seoul Museum of Art. Sia is the author of the chapbook Salty Wet (2019) and the artist book Too Salty, Too Wet (2021), and her essays have appeared in the journals Film Quarterly and October. Sia lives in New York. An-My Lê was born in Saigon, Vietnam, in 1960. She is an artist and currently professor of photography at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at MoMA PS1, Queens (2002); Baltimore Museum of Art (2013); and Museum of Modern Art, New York (2023). In 2008, Dia Beacon presented a commission by Lê consisting of 22 photographs of a basalt quarry located 10 miles up the Hudson River from the museum. Lê’s photographs drew on the traditions of landscape painters of the Hudson River School and of landscape photographers from the 1960s included in Dia’s collection, and represented images that were not strictly of the documentary genre but rather were informed by a historical and cultural understanding of the region. She has been included in numerous group exhibitions at venues including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (2001); Tate Modern, London (2014); and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2015). Lê lives in Brooklyn. Dia Chelsea TURE DD/MM/YYYY On and Off-Screen Imaginaries: A Conversation with Tiffany Sia and An-My Lê

Yang has received fellowships from the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program, Lannan Foundation, and National Endowment for the Arts. He is an editor-at-large for New Directions Publishing and also edits titles for the New York Review Books. His translation of Bei Dao’s Sidetracks will be published by New Directions in May 2024. Yang is based in Beacon, New York. Susie Ibarra is a Filipinx composer, percussionist, and sound artist. Among her many projects, she is the founder of Susie Ibarra Studio and, with artist-musician and engineer Jake Landau, the label and publisher Habitat Sounds.
