Diamond Stingily: Orgasms Happened Here

June 21 – September 14, 2024

Full Press Release

52 Walker is pleased to announce its twelfth exhibition, Orgasms Happened Here, which features new work by the New York–based artist Diamond Stingily (b. 1990). Stingily’s multidisciplinary practice traverses varied fictive, biographical, and autobiographical narratives to recast the symbolic order that governs everyday objects. Throughout 52 Walker, she has installed a series of site-specific architectural interventions that evoke the colors, scale, and ambience of suburban American households and places of worship. These interstitial spaces, as well as the gallery itself, serve as portals into the whimsical and dark memories that are often suppressed in the name of adult decorum, revealing glimpses of the libidinal longing secretly stored in the artist’s and our own collective imaginations.
