Instagram Residency: Richard Hawkins

KALEIDOSCOPE is pleased to welcome Los Angeles-based artist Richard Hawkins for the new installment of KALEIDOSCOPE Instagram Residency, our online Instagram-based project.

Starting today, Hawkins will take over KALEIDOSCOPE’s Instagram account with a series of images and gifs lampooning the artworld darlings currently featured in KALEIDOSCOPE’s pages and on its IG. “One day you’re in, the next day you’re OUT.” A celebrity roast, in other words, but with a healthy dose of dickpix and cute kittens.
