Hey Elisheba!

I think at this point I should just buy pre-made letters, but they won’t match the existing letters, so that worries me.

I am also concerned about sustainability for this piece. At this point, it is clear that people are tearing letters down (I already suspected this, since I’ve never had problems with a letter falling off entirely in the past, but I’ve noticed that the letters have always that are missing been from the bottom row, AND the “E” in the Protect Your Privilege banner was clearly attempted to torn by someone trying to take it all off), and obviously someone tore down the letter.

I guess, when I chose this location, I was told that it was out of arm’s reach. It was only on install day that we realized that it was only 8 ft up as opposed to the previously discussed 10 ft. So I’m just feeling concerned, since we still have two more months of them hanging. It does take a lot of time to make the banners, and the time to replace the letters.I don’t really want to be making four more trips ouI don’t kno. I fee, especially because i want them all to match, so I don’t think I should buy pre-made letters at this point.

What do you think? 

When th

is location was chosen, we were all under the assumption that it would be possible for the banners to be out of jumping height But it also seems like people are going to keep tearing them down, and I don’t really have the time to commit to replacing them over and over. But I also want them to look good and for everyone to be happy. So I’m feeling conflicted/torn.I would love to hear your thoughts, since you have a lot more experience/knowledge than me. :)

Thanks, Elisheba, for being so patient during this process. I really appreciate it!

Hi! I think I will be going with Asia Tail, Raven (both from Tacoma), and a Black friend Anisa. I am down to go anytime, but I think they all can’t take off work until the first week of December, so that’s when the tentative plan is

I am so glad you are going to be able to go!

And yes, reentry is super hard. I went to first Thursday yesterday (thought of you while in Linda Hodges), and it was so challenging to have so many conversations with people. My brain isn’t quite back yet.

steven I am planning on applying to the Artist Trust Arts Innovator award, and I was hoping you could write me a letter of recommendation for the award. I realize that you are probably super busy and have many things to do, but I think this award is a bit out of my league, so I figure I’d ask the fanciest person with the fanciest title that I know… Which is you. :)

 

This is what they say about the lette

 

If that sounds like something you could do, please let me know! I would need it by the 13th. If not, I completely understand. totally an, and there are several other people I can ask, so no pressure.

I just figured it wouldn’t hurt to ask.

Thanks, Steven! Hope you are well.

Best,

Satpreet.

Here is more info on the award: November4

davida King Street Station Hey Davida,

Thank you for recommending me to talk tomorrow at King Street Station. <3

Love,

SatpTendernes With love 

You’re too good. face

Wow, that’s amazing of Signal Fire. I’m so happy for you. Definitely keep me posted.

ANd yeah, “I feltn like I wasn’t really there” that is SO real. I have to give two talks tomorrow, and I am really nervous, because my brain feels full of cotton. I’m floating. Good for creativity and my art practice but very bad for being a productive human functioning in society.

Whooooaa. Whoever got this would be able to work with Sonya Clark, probably. @Davida

King Street Statioi: Nov 5th

Challenges facing artists of color in making/presenting their work

Making:

-Lack of space

-Lack of funding

-Lack of critical conversation around race-related work

-If everyone writ ing about and critiquing work is white, wtf are we supposed to do? Educate first? Nah.

-Lack of infastructure/ 

-Long term funding

-White artists have networks and access to spaces and organized effort to propel artists of color forward

-Lack of 

-Funding for work that isn’t necessarily “race related” time

Showing:

-Lack of space

-Lack of curators of color working more than as freelancers

-Tokenization 

-Incestuous, insular community, mostly white artists

-Not taken seriously as JUST artists, not discussing race

Actionable steps:

-Carve out long-term studio spaces for artists of color

-Carve out network 

-HOSTILITY TOWARDS ARTISTS OF COLOR microaggressions, tokenization, for telling about spaces

-Spacefinder is a good place to start, but many studio spaces go before they are posted on there

-PoC are brought in as consultants and advisers but rarely kept on full time

-AT the grace and mercy of the white people controlling the money

-Movement to get PoC on more juries and leadership positions

-Organizations who get public funding should have to prove that they are making concrete, measurbale efforts to balance the scales, either through hiring, panels, awards given, etc.

-Long-term funding solutions: Not ona one-time $4000 grant, but $1500 a month for a year, or something similar — just to pay for rent and food so that artists can feel sustainable 

-SO much of the money is being funneled first to organizations and then to individuals, but then individual artists are left at the mercy of the institutions, and that often means the neglect of PoC
