Well Reader, I am sharing my take on a week in the art world, or rather the small world of this particular artist caught between news and life while still adapting to postgraduate studies...
News, Monday January 27, 2020: Fire in NYC destroys thousands of objects at the Museum of Chinese in America; Exhibitors at Art Basel Hong Kong ask for 50% reduction citing “political friction”; Yale University to no longer teach introductory art history survey course.
Meanwhile: A Yankee artist sitting in a glaring white seminar room in London’s East End, makes the
startling discovery that she has acquired near fluency in International Art English. Estimating that her language level could only be classified as C1, rather than C2—or possibly even downgraded to a B2 rating—she wonders if somehow this newly recognized language skill can be parlayed into obtaining free food and wine at future art events.
Hi, I'm Romi. I'm an American artist who lives & works in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I have the amazing opportunity to live in London while working on a MFA program in painting and decided to blog about the experience. So here we go!
