“While teaching I will pull the pocket works out and ask my students to describe what is in my hand. I tell them they’re a work of art. What I want to talk about is how the sum is greater than the things I hold, and to pose the question of where art is or what happens with it, that it might be the relationship between the viewer, the artist, and the object, that this relationship could be private.” JK

Kate Newby, Pocket Works, was commissioned in conjunction with the exhibition A puzzling light and moving. viewed October 6, 2018, to October 6, 2019, at the lumber room. This book was a collaboration between the artist, the lumber room, and seven writers; Sara Jaffe, Jennifer Kabat, Sarah Miller Meigs, Eileen Myles, Sarah Sentilles, Stephanie Snyder and Kyle Dancewicz. Each contributor was given a pocket work, to live with over time, and to respond with an essay.
