Date(s)/Time(s): October 18-20th, Friday 3:30-8, Sat 12:00-6:00, Sunday 12-6:00

"Evidence of Being" is an interactive installation using existing rejection letters from Rush’s 30 plus year career. Letters that she has accumulated throughout her career are posted outside of a phone booth, and people are invited to add their own rejection letters to the installation. Speakers play a series of recorded narrative sentences of typical rejection letters from galleries, curators, grants, etc.

All participants will receive a silicone wristband with written Evidence of Being inscribed. Mass mailings of rejections, in particular, make one feel invisible. Rush intends is to transform the negative experience of rejection into a shared experience, connecting people and helping us not feel alone in this process. 

Location: SE corner of 14th St and 7th Ave
