Hey guys guess what!? I passed my Advancement to Candidacy! It only took all of my strength and hard work for this whole semester. I had to give a 15 minute presentation on my work, answering anything my faculty and peers throw at me for 25 minutes after and having a gallery instillation for that week. Here is the install up in Gallery 3 at San Jose State University. It was a great turn out on our reception and I sailed right through it! My committee members called me yesterday to let me know of my passing and I am so excited to be done with this step. Now onto the thesis!
Here is my darling Eliana #gettinit. She created photo polymer plates of her instagram photos and created the body of work #weouthere. Each piece is on beautiful paper with deckled edges and then a typewriter was used to put hashtags on some of the images with her themes of instagram speak, Latina culture and feminism. This work is hanging in the galleries right now on campus for our Advancement to Candidacy shows. Congrats baby, it looks great. #loveyou
Day 1, complete. We survived, y’all! #weouthere
I will always remember the first time I saw Laura Aguilar’s work.
