I was waiting to see if this thread got more activity, excited that it is! I am currently in my senior year of undergrad working toward a BFA in Painting and Drawing, but I mostly work in combined media and installation. I am trying to figure out if this is the right time for me to apply, or if I should take some time off to solidify my practice outside of an academic setting. However, I am still going to give it a shot for the Fall semester. I make installations that use personal and found domestic items - linens, clothing, furniture and food ingredients. Thematically, I focus on family histories and how they fit into a broader context of history, usually erased histories. My practice and research come together through a process of altering the surfaces of objects I did not make in order to reinvent them or give them a new meaning. (I am also in the process of writing my personal statement, so I am sorry if this makes 0 sense). I am including a list of schools that I am interested in applying to, but I am definitely going to cut it down to 2-3 schools: - UNM Albuquerque -Virginia Commonwealth University -Yale -Hunter College -Tulane -Bard -Columbia -SVA If anyone knows something about these schools, or knows someone that attended, lmk. I'll post my portfolio as soon as that is a thing that exists in one place. Good luck to everyone!
