Institute of Contemporary Art Miami Life In My Pocket by Diamond Stingily Book
Working across disciplines, with a concentration in sculpture and video, Diamond Stingily (b. 1990, Chicago) uses readymade materials such as wooden doors, chains, and synthetic hair to create works that reflect on systemic racial injustice in the United States and in her personal experiences. For her solo exhibition "Life In My Pocket" at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami, Stingily created a new group of works in which she uses the form of the readymade to explore personal and shared memories of suburban life, Black girlhood, and racial violence. This first monograph on the artist introduces her rapidly expanding vocabulary and situates it within a significant inquiry into contemporary culture.
