Long Time No Post…

Filed under: art — mete23 @ 12:34 am

Yeah I have been crazy busy cause I am a busy person…not really, school has just been consuming my every waking hour but I am done with midterms! Finally, two-week spring break starts tomorrow.  I submitted a paper tonight and also got my social theory paper back. I wasn’t too happy with that grade but I have been feeling semi-apathetic about grades. Usually after getting poor grades, I mentally lacerate myself with terrible, condescending thoughts but I’m sort of over that now. Hmm, maybe I won’t say apathy because I still do care but I’m also okay with being a ”  ” student.

Wow, I don’t know why I ranted about grades. What I wanted to blog about was Kara Walker’s artwork. She makes silhouettes inspired by Antebellum South folklore on gender and identity issues. They are highly controversial, but personally, I think they shouldn’t be. You can check out a whole biography thing that PBS did on her here.

  1. I think the MFA had an exhibit of her artwork once. These look really familiar…
