Q&A with Diana Oh:

Q: What do you want the audience to get out of this show?

A: “Damn, I feel good–so good that I could eat a car right now.” That’s how it felt like when I first fell in love–I felt like I could eat a car.

Q: Tell us about a mentor or idol who has affected your work.
A: Kathleen Hanna gives no fucks if you don’t agree with her but she wants you to get out of her way–I like that.

Q: What’s your favorite thing about the Boston art scene?
A: Boston is where I did my best nights out dancing to live music. My best friend from college and my first ex is from there — Boston = a lot of life for me.

Artist quote: “Over time, one thing I’ve learned about myself as an artist is: when you’re the best version of yourself, it helps other people be the best version of themselves.”
