Now Hiring: Operations and Marketing Manager


Katy Diamond Hamer

Katy Diamond Hamer is an art writer with a focus on contemporary art and culture. Writing reviews, profiles, interviews and previews, she started the online platform Eyes Towards the Dove in 2007 and was first published in print in 2011 with Flash Art International. Hamer had a column with Flash Art from 2011-2016. Interview highlights include Robert Storr, Helmut Lang, Courtney Love, and Rebecca Horn. Taking a cue from art writers such as Jerry Saltz and movements such as Arte Povera (Italy, 1962-1972), Hamer believes that the language used to describe contemporary art should be both accessible to a large audience as well as informed regarding art historical references. Having grown up in New York, she has been visiting art museums and galleries since the age of 16 and cannot imagine a world without art, or the written words used to allow others to also experience a particular level of engagement.
