Jessica Diamond is an American artist based in New York. Diamond became known in the early 1980s in New York City for her installations, which consisted of large wall texts that were frequently critical of commercialism. During the early 1990s, Diamond’s texts began to explore the conditions of growing up in American society and themes of a more political nature, such as the dynamics of international relations. Around this time she also began to incorporate texts written on paper in addition to the direct application of paint on museum and gallery walls. Diamond’s most recent work has focused on the subject of cinema, with the texts drawn from film theory as well as the metaphysics of film apparatus. Diamond showed work in the group exhibition, "Objects in Collision," at The Kitchen in 1985, which explored the relationship between art and the commodity, alongside the artists Haim Steinbach and David Robbins, who also frequently use text in their work, among others.
