Jamie Diamond (Faculty, MFA '08) in exhibition at Ramis Barquet Gallery, NY, Opening September 10th, 6pm

Ramis Barquet Gallery, NY is pleased to present Portrait Histories, a solo exhibition of photography, video and live performances by Jamie Diamond (Faculty, MFA '08). Curated by Karline Moeller, the exhibition is an exploration of the oldest popular use of photography, the family portrait. Diamond's work reveals the fictions of this familiar photographic moment and in so doing explores the varying codes and rituals that regulate our photographic behavior. Diamond uses the household genre of photography as a platform for further investigation into the discipline's characteristic nuances and methods. By isolating and in some cases extending each of the image's component signifiers, the artist reveals the flaws beneath the surface of the portrait, and undermines our faith in the veracity of what we are accustomed to seeing. This is Diamond's second solo exhibition in New York, the first taking place in 2008 at Moeller Snow Gallery.

Opening Reception: Friday, September 10th, 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Exhibition Dates: September 10th - October 2nd, 2010
