unease

i am finding straddling the spheres of academica and visual arts practice difficult and conflicted….today i feel like a misfit in both arenas, which is also somehow strangely motivating! in response to a recent article which asks ‘can women in the arts really have it all?’ i am also thinking about writing a more polished post on the ironies and generalized misperceptions of what it means for women to ‘want it all.’i always have had issue with the term itself and the way it is bandied about, the way that phrase conjures up certain assumptions.
