LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs works with words, sound, and video. Joyelle McSweeney writes of her recent poetry collection TwERK, “It’s like an almanac-zodiac-aphrodesiac-cum-emetic: it’s going to make the language come out of you, and the knowledge, too.” Diggs’ writing has been published widely, and her performance work has been featured at The Kitchen, Exit Art, The Whitney, and MoMa. As a curator and artistic director, Diggs has staged events at El Museo del Barrio, Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, Dixon Place, and BAM Café. She is the recipient of many awards including those from Cave Canem, New York Foundation for the Arts, and Millay Colony. Along with Greg Tate, she edits yoYO/SO4 Magazine.
