Portfolio Concentration

“The art world is much tougher than you think-whether is the practice side, the theory side, then history side, then gallery side, the classroom side, the selling side, the buying side, the working side, the thinking side, Therefore, be prepared to work extra hard from the beginning on everything you undertake, but do not undertake too much. Too many students today try to do too much-resulting in work that is fragmentary and not up to there potential. The intentions are sincere, but you really cannot do it all well. Focus on what is important and on what your professors tell you is important. Let the rest just fade into the important and on what your professors tell you are important; Let the rest just fade into the background. This is the way to become really good at something, and the sooner you start doing it the better you will be at whatever you decide to do. Trust yourself to do your best, that is the beginning of originality.”
- Catherine M Soussloff, Professor of Art History and Patricia and Rowland Rebele Chair in Art History, Universality of California
