Eva Díaz is Assistant Professor in the History of Art and Design Department at Pratt Institute. Her book The Experimenters: Chance and Design at Black Mountain College was recently released by the University of Chicago Press. The project examines how an interdisciplinary group of artists proposed new models of art practice around the concept of experimentation, and focuses on three key Black Mountain teachers in the late 1940s and early 1950s: Josef Albers, John Cage, and Buckminster Fuller. Díaz's writing appears in magazines and journals such as The Art Bulletin, Artforum, Art Journal, Art in America, BOMB, Cabinet, The Exhibitionist, Frieze, Grey Room, Harvard Design Magazine, October, and Tate Etc. She was recently awarded a Creative Capital / Warhol Foundation Art Writers Grant to pursue research for her book about the legacy of Buckminster Fuller’s work, titled The Fuller Effect: The Critique of Total Design in Postwar Art.
