Anna Binta Diallo is a Canadian multi-disciplinary visual artist who investigates memory and nostalgia to create unexpected narratives surrounding identity. The Wanderings (2019-2021) series is a continuation of Diallo’s investigations into the themes of migration, displacement, and personal mythologies, as well as the relationship between language, history, and identity. Taking the form of a large scale, site-specific installation, she creates an immersive environment with a multitude of characters. Diallo has a BFA at the University of Manitoba’s School of Fine Arts (2006) and an MFA from the Transart Institute in Berlin (2013). Her work has been shown nationally and internationally including exhibitions in Winnipeg, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Finland, and Berlin. Diallo has been the recipient of multiple grants and honours. In 2019, Diallo was selected as a shortlisted finalist for the Salt Spring National Art Prize and in 2021 she was awarded the Barbara Sphor Memorial Prize from the Walter Phillips Gallery.
