Happy art making, 

I received this letter, as many others that I’ve received in the last year, so why this is different? Well, I looked through my notebooks, mails and register notes and there was nothing about any application to this gallery. Certainly, I contacted them because it’s one of the 100 galleries project but beside that I’ll never apply to them as far as I can recall, and I received this mail twice… twice!

Maybe something it’s working beyond my own work: some posts are starting to spread their wings and fly by themselves. I don’t know if that is good or bad, after all I still haven’t had a gallery representation and still haven’t received any answer for most of my submissions but letters like this one that came literally out of nothing give me some hope. I wonder if somebody had ever received a letter like this one without applying. I don’t know but maybe there’s going to be a time when I’m going to receive a letter from MoMA about something that I never ask before.

  1. I got some calls to enter at a gallery in New York a few years ago and it was them who contacted me. I looked them up and couldn’t find much info, only a few photos, no nice web site. I thought it could be a scam so I didn’t answer. Is this a place you could check out, or too far away from where you are?

    1. I’m in Toronto, 6 hours driving from New York but what my experience told me is that nobody contact you unless you’re a superstar. If somebody contracted you and asked for money, even $10 certainly it’s a scam.
