Ongoing project where I send unsolicited proposal ideas via email to various galleries/institutions/artists in the hopes that they will agree to host a project of mine or collaborate with me.
At 2:55 pm on Jan 7th 2010, I received an email from Risa with the Blanton declining my request to exhibit. Her email was complimentary of the exhibition concept, but she mentioned that Blanton’s Workspace Gallery does not accept proposals from artists. Additionally, she mentioned that the Workspace Gallery seeks to feature work from artists outside our local/regional boundaries. She suggested a few spaces in Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas for me to submit the exhibition idea to.
received the following response to Yours Sincerely @ 5:20 PM on Monday, April 26th 2010:
Dear Sean Ripple
Thank you for bringing your project work to Dia’s attention.
Dia’s program is limited and highly focused while we develop a new facility.
We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to learn more about your activities.
We wish you all the best for his future endeavors.
With best regards,
