Artists 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 the work more or less desirable not forgetting the provenance of the artist themselves...

‘Rejected’ seeks to celebrate rejection, through a united force of artists getting together to valiantly display their previously rebuffed work.

The exhibition aims to dispose the issue of whether each individual piece is indeed lesser than that of its contemporaries. Following an open call, every single proposal to the Rejected exhibition was accepted. Alongside their rejected artwork, each artist will openly display a list of previous rejections from galleries, competitions and art schools.
