Whoever Got Me Sick, I Will Pay You Back! I Swear!
I am sick as a dog. My throat is sore, my voice sounds horrible, and my nose is red from the constant wiping. The minute my nose runs, I feel a tingly sensation above my lip. (What is that area called anyways? The roof?) I greedily drank all of Tien's orange juice. Sadly, I still need more!!!!
I missed two important school appointments because of this sudden affliction. I was supposed to meet with Emily to discuss internship possibilities (I have her for Fine Art Internship and it's week 5, I have yet to find a place to intern) and a studio visit from Matt D. @ 5:00 PM. But due to this sudden nastiness, I was forced to reschedule. Ugh!!!!
But this email from Emily had me in high spirits today.
You have been selected to be in a group crit with this year's Lightborne Resident Artist, Hank Willis Thomas. You can find out about his work at www.hankwillisthomas.com. Thomas is in the International Center for Photography's Triennial right now. He has shown at PS1, The National Museum in Harlem, Orange County Museum of Art and others. Thomas is represented by the Jack Shainman Gallery in NY and Roberts and Tilton in LA. He received the Aperture book prize and a Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship. It is quite an honor to have him at the AAC and to look at your work.
You were selected because of the type (either medium, genre or subject matter) of work you make. Your adviser or a faculty member thought you would benefit from Mr. Thomas' insight. Each student will be critiqued for 10-15 minutes.
Date: Friday, October 9th
Time: work set up by 12:45. The crit will end at 3pm
What: Bring several pieces you want feedback on and any support material you think is necessary.
Please RSVP to me by Thursday, September 24th. If you will need any technology, such as a computer or projector, please let me know at that time.
Like wow. I know a good opportunity when I see it. Me and seven other chosen students for a special crit. Though my work isn't particularly that interesting to me right now and that this news surprised me, it did lift my spirits immensely.
I pray that I won't be sick that day!!!!! That date just so happens to be two days after my birthday too. Hahahaha. So the chances are very slim that I'll be missing out on this important event. :D
