Musings from a Yankee artist abroad in London...
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 fine art.
International Art English
A Yankee artist, while 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. Or at least this is the assessment delivered to the class according to a much esteemed tutor—that we have all been speaking this alternate language without even realizing it. 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.
