Flashback to yesterday when I went to see @miriamkleinstahl and @lenawolffstudio’s show Radical Matriarchs at @johansson_projects. Miriam’s paper cuts are incredible (you may recognize her work from the book Rad American Women A-Z) and the whole show was beautiful and inspiring and even included some sweet drawings by their daughter. Thanks for putting so much great art and activism into the world, ladies. .

Today we are pinning the places my immigrant interviewees and quilt makers came from. We are drawing their paths to America. Here, in this forest inside of the white cube, borders are just an illusion, immaterial  traces created by light coming from a very old retro projector generously lent by my studio colleague Jon, who like me, also makes works using the energy of the earth. #workinprocess #installation #sewing #resistance #socialpractice #artandactivism #immigration #immigrantsaregreat #buildingcommunity #socialandpoliticalchoreography #northadams #assets4artists #massmocaresidency #community #practiceofeverydaylife #place #thisplacecalledhome #homespaces #massachusetts #archivinghistories #artahdhistory #keepinghistoriesalive #comtemporaryart #socialart #socialartexperience

I apologise for the sloppiness, but I am posting this in utter frustration and anger. Hundreds of miles away, over 10,000 peaceful protesters marched out to the capital of Armenia in outrage after a corrupt and broken parliament voted Serzh Sargisian, who has played a major role in limiting and violating the rights Armenians, crippling all private and nongovernment businesses, and was elected thanks to bribery, for the THIRD term. The protesters, who were standing outside the capital building, in order to stop the parliament from resuming were attacked by police, and stuffed into vans, and detained, thus infringing on their right to peaceful assembly.
The protests will continue until president Sargisian is impeached, or the government is over thrown, unfortunately many will be hurt in the process, but it absolutely devastates me, to see people harassed by the same body that is meant to protect them. 
I know this is totally removed from most of you guys, but I think it's important we all are aware of what others are fighting for around the rest of our world.
Well, congrats on reading this far! And thanks, it feels nice to rant sometimes :) FYI the colors on the background of this are the Armenian flag.

Your friend tells you in the morning: forget about painting the walls. Focus on doing just one work. Make your art simple, easy, and economic. But then, you arrive at your studio and you cannot think how to inhabit the square box, inside of white walls. You go to the hardware store. Color is an excuse. You meet people. Your talk. You listen. You get to live the place you are standing on. And you go back to the studio. You love the mess you are beginning to make. You want to create worlds within the world you were given. You go to bed, you think of all the different ways  you can express your work and ideas. You draw imaginary rooms in the ceiling of your bedroom. You make invisible collages, oil portraits, drawings, and rearrange them over and over again. You notice the rush inside of your body. You are alive. You fall asleep after rearranging your installation 4 or 5 times in the darkness of your room. The next day it occurs to you the impossibility of compromising. How can you wake up and possibly be content with doing the least when you can do the most? #workinprocess #installation #sewing #resistance #socialpractice #artandactivism #immigration #immigrantsaregreat #buildingcommunity #socialandpoliticalchoreography #northadams #assets4artists #massmocaresidency #community #practiceofeverydaylife #place #thisplacecalledhome #homespaces #massachusetts #archivinghistories #artahdhistory #keepinghistoriesalive #comtemporaryart #socialart #socialartexperience

Here is another amazing judge for the nasty women art prize.  Danielle Krysa has a BFA in Visual Arts from the University of Victoria, and a post-grad in design from Sherian College. She began her career as a painter, but her love for graphic design quickly changed her interest from painting to mixed media - specifically collages filled with narratives, negative space, and pop cultural references. (Danielle Krysa is also is the writer behind the contemporary art site, The Jealous Curator, and the author of Creative Block, Collage and Your Inner Critic Is A Big Jerk.) Danielle lives and works in British Columbia, Canada.

I created “Dissent” as a response to the mob lynchings, the disappearances of people who spoke against those in power, Rohit Vemula’s suicide and the events that transpired in India in 2015-16. Because we must stand up for those whose voices are not heard. I will always use my art as a medium to share, express, question and as a call for action.  #monakhancompany #dissent #speakup #unite #strongertogether #danceforacause #artandactivism.

Single spread from the book I created last semester: "Gay Culture: A Sampling of Gay Life in New York City from 1950-1980"

Being enamored with gay history myself, I created this book to bring some of the lesser-known points of gay activism and culture to light. Detailing subjects such as the Mattachine society, anti-sodomy laws, mafia associations and more, this book discusses all of the things that led up to the Stonewall riots of '69. 
If you would like to read more of this 26 page book, the link is in the bio.

It's Set: We are sewing together! Quilt Making Workshop at MASS MoCA Studios! ☀️Details
Quilting Under the Northern Skies: Stitching  Massachusetts Immigration Histories.

When: Saturday, the 21st, 10 am-4pm
Where: The Studios at MASS MoCA (Studio 6)
1320 MASS MoCA Way
North Adams

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED by email (simone@simonecouto.com).Free of Charge. Materials Included. Lunch provided.

Don't miss the opportunity to participate in an art project! In conjunction with the Studios of MASS MoCA, the artist Simone Couto proposes a quilt-making workshop with immigrants currently living in the Berkshire County area or visiting, as well as anyone who feels closely connected to another culture besides the American. The traveling quilt will be displayed at the MASS MoCA Open Studios on April 28th (5-7 p.m.). After, the quilt will travel as the artist will continue to add squares while developing this project in other towns. 
The workshop aims to provide a safe environment for creativity and making where the artist and participants can share their knowledge and stories about what makes a place feel like home. Finally, we will translate these stories into a collective quilt.

Couto plans to document these conversations as part of her Suspended Beds Installation currently in development in the residency. 
For more information on Couto's art practice and works please visit: Simonecouto.com

Active Engagement: —We will look at quilt images of MA historical quilts and contemporary quilts of resistance. —We will talk a bit what home means to each one of us.
—We will go over the materials and DEMO a simple square quilt-making process.
—Each one of us will work on a small square.

Concept:

American quilts are a living document of the empowerment of Immigrants. "They are the products of their society, influenced by the culture, and the environment of the people who made them. The history of America can be seen in the history of quilts.”
(www.nps.gov)

These little people, with big hearts and big minds and even bigger ideas. We've having tons of conversations about injustices we notice globally and in our community. Most importantly, injustices they experience in magazines they look at, books they read, in the hallway and outside in the playground etc. through art of course. I love 'em all. The last image makes my heart especially warm and would make @lupitanyongo smile. #artseducation #artsed #artandactivism

I can’t keep up with the news as it’s constantly the same sad messages. #stephonclark and #saheedvassell are both resting in peace after being the most recent (media addressed) black men murdered by cops.

What can be said that hasn’t already?

I just know I’d rather live in a world where I don’t have to provide reasons why #blacklivesmatter 
Read about us, learn about us, love us—because we’re just like you, but targeted.

This watercolor on panel just went up in my shop (link in bio) and was inspired by sea life organisms in the Gulf of Mexico in a #natgeo photograph. I am pairing this image with a passage from The Tempest in honor of #nationalpoetrymonth. #williamshakespeare
********************************
Full fathom five thy father lies;
Of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes:
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.
Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell:  Ding-dong.
Hark! now I hear them,—ding-dong, bell.

Had an incredible experience @aipadphoto this year. Saw exquisite work and heard informative talks. Took notice of the presence of the African diaspora on the walls and in the room. The most poignant moment was meeting @brucedavidsonphoto the Magnum photographer who in 1963 took the photo that captures what our family has always been about. Gave him lots of hugs. #everythingossieandruby @ossieandruby #ossiedavis #rubydee #familyaffair #activism #artandactivism #thepowerofimages

#GreshamTapiyaNyaude @newmuseum’s #Triennial #SongsofSabotage. Nyaude takes an alternative tact from the archetypal #conceptual seriousness that art portraying social topics characteristically relies. His work revels in the act of #painting with #vivid and joyous #color that masks the concerns for civil and social issues of his native Zimbabwe. Although abstracted and painterly, they are still confrontational.  #contemporaryart #contemporarypainting #artandactivism

Do you know what a frustrating mess 100's of wire hangers are to untangle and organize? I do.😂 Using these in the installation I am working on. Thanks for the hangers @greenpickens can't wait to show you how I'm using them.❤ #installationart #sculpture #macrame #macramento #wirehanger #NOWIREHANGERS #mommydearest #fiberart #fiberartist #artistlife #artistofsacramento #artandactivism #firstfestival #firstfestsac

Fantastic recording session at @davidpstevens studio. And the electric guitar he laid down was siiiiiiick!! Creative fun! Can’t wait for everyone to hear this song...finally! 
Oh and peep the magazine spread! This brother is highly skilled, super humble and a legit blessing! But I made him hold up the feature because I think he deserves the recognition. We’ve worked with the same people for 10 years but never together until now. Always heard great things. Big ups to my producer and brother @delldrumz for connecting us today.
