A-side B-side galleryArtists frequently get rejections from shows and competitions; rejection is part of what being an artist is all about.  Often an exhibition will have a curatorial concept and the work just simply doesn’t fit the theme, in competitions the judges are subjective and essentially select what they like.  Current trends in the art world might make your work more or less desirable not forgetting the provenance of the artist themselves…

The ‘Rejected’ exhibition will be held at A-side B-side Gallery during the first two weeks of May, we are looking for artists to submit one piece of work and a rejection letter or email they have received previously.

ALL SUBMISSIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED

The idea of the exhibition is to celebrate rejection, a united force of artists getting together to valiantly display their work. Will an aesthetic cohesion emerge from the collection of work?  How many pieces will be submitted?  And how will we hang it?!

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: Wednesday 25th May 5pm

Criteria:
2d work not exceeding 120 x 120 cm
Please email the following to asidebsidegallery@hotmail.com
1 low-res jpeg
A list of shows/competitions/art schools you were rejected by
A copy of one rejection letter (a scan of a letter received in the post or a copy of an email)

Private View: 3rd May, First Thursday | Exhibition will run for two weeks, last day Thursday 17th May
A-side B-side Gallery is housed within Hackney Downs Studios, 5-9 Amhurst Terrace, E82BT
