Darpan’s wedding choices:

Most expensive choice, but I really like it

 

 

Maybe too summer-y?

 

(With burgundy pajami and nice chunni maybe?)

SOrry — for some reason this got lost in my other texts. I think I would prefer January at this point just in terms of work logistics. 

BUt I am open.

Logan is still open but would also have to take off work

gursewak96 Hey Rachel,

I’m glad that concentration went well, and that it was a learning process for you as well as for the students. 

Wow. Congratulations on the move to Vancouver. I have been meaning to make it up there. Everyone says that it is super beautiful, and definitely the opposite (in terms of politics) of North Carolina — my friends in Seattle call it a hippy white cita city where old white hippies go to retire. (mostly, but that it still has some vibrancy as well. I’ll have to come visit! 

I know somewhat of how you feel about letting go of your Penland dream, though. It’s always been in the back of my head — first, I thought a lot about the core fellowship, and then, a couple of years ago, I realized thto try to get to Penland long term in some way. And in the past few months, I really started thinking about the residency. I kept thinking about your studio and your work, and the beauty and ease of the financial burden of rent and studio rent being lifted, and having so much natural space to wander in, and a community literally outside the front door. I want to believe that the Penland I fell in love with during my first class in 2011 is still a Penland that could exist for me — but I just don’t know. I think the summer that I was there with you, I had just come back from India and was really starting to discover myself as a woman of color, and I think I was confused for a lot of reasons that summer (the beginning of a really long, mysterious chronic illness that I’m just now 80% recovered from), but I think racial issues had a lot to do with my unease and lack of comfort. Even the most wonderful and well-meaning people can very easily be racially insensitive, especially in an environment like Penland, where the culture seems so progressive and forward-thinking, but is really so deeply insular. 

And then part of me thinks that it’s not fair that I can’t have the Penland dream. Why do I have to go and face exoticism and tokenism and the subtle undermining of my value as an artist, with the preference for my value as a ‘recipient of the generous spirit of Penland’s mission for art for everyone (yes, even you brown chigiven to? Shouldn’t I try to be there just to spite it all and to force people to confront and be uncomfortable with my entire political self? 

But then I think about my mental and emotional health. And I think about my work, which is veering more and more away from craft for craft’s sake and more and more towards concept and critical theory, and I wonder if Penland’s community would serve that. But then I think about you and how you were able to work really critically within your practice while there, so it’s clearly possible.

I don’t know. As you can probably see, this is something I go back and forth with a lot. I vow I will never apply, and then I find myself on the website. I really don’t know.

As far as projects go, I got asked to be a curator at The Alice, so I am starting to do that and will be curating a show there in April (which I might grou, and I will be curating a show at a gallery called SOIL in Seattle in July, and I have a kind of big show coming up at the Wing Luke Museum in either late 2017 or early 2018 (waiting to hear back about an NEA grant), so that’s my big thing that I’m gearing up for. Continuing to teach at Seattle Art Museum (my latest programming will start in February, I believe), and taking on some large-scale commissions for art consultants to make some extra money. Balancing a lot to make ends meet.

Rent in Seattle is increasingly outrageous. My partner, Logan, and I are currently paying $1450 for a place that is a little under 400 sqft in not a very central location. I am currently between studios, so that’s a huge bummer and has me feeling very clogged but also reconsidering what my practice can look and feel like. 

I’ll be applying to a few grad schools this year to see what happens.I may have mentioned, Just looking for a concrete next step that takes some of the financial pressure off of me. Not sure what that is, but allows me to create within an inspiring and challenging peer goru oand maybe it is in Seattle, but I’ll keep looking.

Thanks for reading my novel,

SatpreetIf you have any advice, let me know. I’ll be applying to Yale, SAIC, VCU, Hunter, and RISD, I believe. ‘m looking mainly at Yale, Hunter, and VCU. a (I have access to a space that is 100 sqft, but it is so small and far enough away that I never go) just started paying forIf you created new work or were particularly inspired by some of the work that your students created, I would love to see pictures/hear about it. Anything that could make me feel like I was (almost) there.It will be an adventure for sure, and I am excited for both of you.I think if I had one ally, I would apply.could guarantee having at leasco-conspirator 

And then I wonder if I would even be considered for it. And not being asked would break my heart, a little bit. seriously consideredI’m accustomed to rejection, but Penland rejection feels more personal, somehow.current A few small shows coming up, but nothing too exciting. (mostly group) (assuming you made it this far) 263
