REJECTION PIZZA PARTY (April 2022)
I hosted a community pizza party in my backyard for anyone who had ever been rejected. The price of admission was one letter of rejection. I wanted to create a space to discuss the ubiquity of rejection in art and examine the language used to deliver disappointing news. Guests brought print-outs of emails from employers, schools, and grant organizations, break-up texts, and visual representations of previous verbal rejections.
