Minor Delusions of Grandeur!
Stride Gallery’s annual fundraiser celebrates the artist’s propensity towards Delusions of Grandeur, with a timely exposé of the symptoms and the effects of this strange, but widespread, art-world phenomena. An epidemic that affects artists of all geographies and levels of experience, artists are at particularly high risk for developing Delusions of Grandeur, but will find themselves cured at Stride Gallery!
The experts at Stride Gallery have complied an easy checklist to help you identify what is colloquially called “the painter’s plague”, but has infested all areas of contemporary art practice:
* find that obsessive self-portraiture keeps you cooped-up in your studio?
* suspect that other artists are stealing your things or your work, not to mention your best ideas?
* battle accusations of being a prima-donna?
* hang out with Andy Warhol during your most private daydreams?
* watch in anguish as your ambitious projects go the way of the Titanic?
* have trouble stretching that black T-shirt over your swollen head in the morning?If any of the above statements apply to you, consider it a tell-tale sign!
Your submission is the first step on the road to recovery from your individual Delusions of Grandeur. Delusions no larger than 8 inches long will be accepted for analysis before Saturday, November 15, 2003 at 4:30, for display and auction on the evening of November 28.
