I've gotten three or four rejections in the last week; I'll list them -
Delfina Studio Trust - this would have been great. London!
Segal Foundation - if I had gotten this I would have bought a 1976 Winnebago. i wrote about applying for this here.
Ota Museum Fellowship - i want to go home! i wrote about applying for this here.
I have so many rejections!!! I'm taking consolation in the knowledge that I am one of many. I am legion. I've discovered a boomlet of over-the-top anonymous artist's blogs, here are some quotes from a couple of them -
From Mountain Man's artisticthoughts:
"I don't understand gallerists. I feel so puny today!!!!"
"In thinking about the artworld from an artist's perspective, it's important to remember: 1. You are puny."
"I'm defeated. So. You know how I'm googling my enemies. Well. I googled an enemy and it turns out that she got into something I applied for. UNACCEPTABLE!"
From Art Star's Planet Mega Ultra:
"Lately I am thinking that I need have sex with someone who has a career. That may be a good way to go."
"There are a few women out there who seem to know how to work it. I want to be like them and have my picture posted on artnet with a drink in my hand and a coy but knowing look on my face."
Mountain Man is hilarious - I can't keep up. I like Art Star too. I think they are all applying for the Deitch MTV thing?
I did get one acceptance into a group show, I'll announce it when I have all the info.
Congratulations to Todd Gibson on his new baby!!!!
SAME NIGHT UPDATE:
I forgot to mention Fairy Butler's phantastic:
"I am an artist. The psuedo spring rings its bells but I fail to answer them. I am imprisoned by failure. The Greater New York Show. What is so great about it? Why do these crafty titans refuse me? Ignore me? Stifle me with their pale curatorial efforts?"
Fairy Butler on getting his/her latest rejection here.
