OMG, Grad School!

Well, its been weeks, no months since i last posted any thing to my blog. I'm now living in Syracuse NY attending Grad school. I enjoy having all this time to work on my art, speaking of
'the work' it has change somewhat. I am still talking about race and gender, but now the work is more in your face and has some attitude. I think people take for granted the time they have in grad school to really push their work. I will not lose this moment to excel. Here is where the boundaries should be blurred and you should plow through and see what come out the other end. I have taken this advice and i am moving forward with my practice.
I just wrote this quote on the wall of my studio...

I am only one, but i am one.
I cannot do everything, but i can do something.
And I will not let what i cannot do interfere with what i can do.

It’s funny how one part of my life has come full circle since my studio visit with the Studio Museum in Harlem. In 2006 I travelled to SMH to speak with Lowery Stokes Sims, then their executive director, and left with the feeling that much more work and scholarship needed to be done.  I met with SMH’s newest associate curator Connie Choi and assistant curator Hallie Ringle and felt good about it. Of course there is always work to do, but I feel much closer. Twins (2017) is now part of their permanent collection! Thelma Golden before Twins Nobody’s Darling: Women and Representation at UT Austin’s Christian-Green gallery continues over the course of this summer and concludes on August 4, 2017. As I’ve said, I’m thrilled to have support in Austin and am as happy to see varying interest across the US. I will participate in the 2017 Art on the Vine atMart…
