We Regret To Inform You (2009)

The Rejection Letter Dress: turning the negative to positive. The dress is made of rejection letters that I have received since 1986, when I began to submit proposals for exhibitions, calls for enty, grants and various jobs. Not represented on the dress are: proposals made by me that were ignored and group exhibition proposals for which I did not personally receive the rejection letter. The dress will always be 'current' as long as I keep receiving rejection letters!
