Building Backbones by Diedra Krieger

by powhida on October 23, 2010

Artists are invited to read rejection letters from a grant application, residency or exhibition submission at Building Backbones on Friday, December 3, from 3-4pm at Ed Winkleman's space at Seven, as part of William Powhida and Jennifer Dalton's #Rank Miami. To participate, send an image with the artist's name and a copy of the rejection letter to rejectionrank@gmail.com. It is estimated the event can accommodate up to 40 letters and artists. If the artist is unable to attend in person another artist present will read his or her letter. Rejection is a big player in the artist practice more than most professional fields.  Even my most successful MFA teachers still have to deal with rejection. Success includes rejection. This event will help artists build backbones for rejection through shared experience.
  • At least two people will read each rejection letter received, the artist who received it and the host(s) of this event.

    Heard today, your collection of rejection letters becomes your war chest.
