This Semester and Doorway to Joe-The Art of Joe Coleman

Thursday, May 18, 2017

This has been without a doubt the most challenging semester of my life. And I've been in school for a while... Tomorrow after I take my last final, it will all be safely behind me. Only one more semester before I'm done with my degree, and unless I decide to continue on with my academic career and pursue a PhD, it will be the last semester of school period. I have definitely learned things in school that extend FAR beyond the classroom.

I had the pleasure of co-curating an exhibition for my program.  The exhibition was Doorway to Joe: The Art of Joe Coleman.  It had engulfed the better part of a year of my life and it was a definite learning experience.  The capstone of my degree, it was the first full exhibition I had curated myself.  I'm glad I got to be a part of it, and I learned so much about my career and myself while working on this exhibition.

Next up I will be curating a show about the modern Black Metal aesthetic, called "PITCH."

I'm excited, apprehensive, nervous, and ready for what comes next.  I will be working so hard on advancing my career in the next few months.  I'm not quite sure how to live without being a student, but I guess, like everything, I'll learn.
