...”However, something started to change once I joined Instagram; paragraphs were replaced by images and captions. Rather then invest 8 hours writing an article gathering photos and captions, I could now post a photograph or a carousel of photographs with a short caption and get a similar result, feedback from my peers and colleagues. At first this felt like reward enough but as time has gone by, I’ve grown distant from words, the delicious descriptions of art that I so often am drawn to and fueled by. The withdrawal has been painful. In the discomfort I’ve found mostly silence. Images in the realm of social media allow for dialogue and engagement but are at once enlightening and limiting.” @katyhamer • •

“There is a dialogue in the New York art scene that has faded. Many of the in-depth talks held in downtown apartments at all hours of the night accompanied cigarettes and beer between young artists passionate about making things, are now more likely to happen in art schools and at residencies. As the cost of living has gone up, everyone has gotten busier and while those connections and conversations will never stop, they change. Today we have a multitude of virtual relationships. Social media is an evolving platform that brings people together yet lacks tactile engagement.” ~Katy Diamond Hamer Read more of my take on “Digging for Diamonds in the Disco” organized by Tony Cox ( @ronlittles ) featuring @motherfuture @lousyleo and others. 💎💍 💎 #linkinbio #carousel

⏳What is time ⌛️ but an invisible marker for space. • In an exhibition featuring works by Fabio Mauri (1926-2009) @hauserwirth time is everywhere —lingering in doorways, huddled in corners. The artist used the poetics of memory as a catalyst for explorations into a collective human experience resulting in what could be described as uniquely individual. Mauri made portraits without relying on representation but rather the nuances of personhood, resulting in an emotional and tactile layering, unlike so much of contemporary art which can disappoint as it is  one dimensional. This exhibition seeks to excavate the soul and couldn’t be more prescient. “He was surprised more about the invention of the horse rather than the unicorn.” ~Sara Condutti, Fabio Mauri Estate 🐎 And I agree....sometimes the recognition of truth is much more challenging than the proposition of fantasy. #katydiamondhamer

There are some holes here

Because we all have to sway and bend.

But that can be fixed, mended.

Think about what you can do.

If you want to walk around, don’t be shy, this is your house too.

Sewers who are sowing. Wonderful. Make it all look like new.

Sew on and sow on and sew on. We are not sewing we are giving, we are putting out!

Just as I see you

They see you too. ~Protagonist from umBhovuzo: The Parable of the Sower by artist @nicholashlobo Curated by @performanyc Founding Director and art historian RoseLee Goldberg for Performa 17. Read about it in Eyes Towards the Dove 🕊 #linkinbio 🕊

In 2002/2003 I went to the Graham Avenue section of Williamsburg to do a studio visit with artist @pagmi and spied Caffe Capri, an Italian coffee shop. Being a grade-A Italophile, I knew that I needed to live in the neighborhood and have done so for 8 years! Well, times change and tattooer @mark__cross has opened @muddguts an art gallery & boutique, with the same aesthetic as the original venue. Cross, also of @rosetattooparlour is showing photographs by @blakebyblake selling t-shirts and hoodies and has a line-up of other exhibitions and events planned. Read about it in Eyes Towards the Dove and visit to see how the next generation can evolve and intervene in a space with grace. ✌️Scroll for a pic of our friends at Model T Meats. #linkinbio

I spoke to artist @matthewsweesy about his artwork on the occasion of his exhibition @dianerosenstein • “For example, I take, say an arm, and cut apart not the actual arm, but the idea of the arm. In this process, questions arise possibly along the lines of, ‘Does the sun have arms? What if the sun has my arms and my arms are the sun’s rays?’ I admit and am comfortable with the notion that this sounds very childish. However, in the reassembly that unfolds by answering these questions, identities begins to blur, empathy grows and a feeling of connectedness increases. I feel become part of the gear-workings of the universe instead of isolated within my own anatomy.” ~ Matthew Sweesy 🌞 #linkinbio 🌞
