Dear Ongoing Conversation supporters and followers,
Instagram deactivated our account without any notification or any declaration. This happened almost a month ago when I was traveling in Iran. We have made every attempt to get our Instagram page reinstated, including reaching out to Instagram directly, filing a complaint with their customer support team, and checking daily for updates.
Unfortunately, all of these efforts have failed. It's very disappointing and sad to see three and half years of hard work being erased without any explanation. However, we will persevere with the help of our wonderful community of supporters. We created a new Instagram page under the username @ongoing.conversation It is important that we regain our loyal following so that we can communicate with artists, supporters, and the community to share our future programs with them.
We cannot do this without your help!
Please follow @ongoing.conversation and consider sharing our new Instagram page with your friends and fellow artists.We are looking for the light in this dark situation and hope to use this new page as an opportunity for our supporters to share their content with us as well as any photos or posts you possess relating to Ongoing Conversation and our programs.
Ongoing Conversation is continuously grateful for the support of this community, and despite this disappointment, our mission remains the same and our message will only continue to spread. Ongoing Conversation is a platform for showcasing artists from different backgrounds in venues around the world. Ongoing Conversation's mission is “to bring together disparate voices in the visual arts through an international purview in order to examine cross-cultural similarities of the human condition".
