i'm jealous of your failure opens at visual arts gallery. university of illinois springfield

The University of Illinois Springfield Visual Arts Gallery presents “I’m Jealous of Your Failure,” a group exhibition that showcases interpretations of failure, personal or otherwise. The exhibit contains the work of nearly 30 contemporary artists from all over the country and is curated by Trew Schriefer.

I’m Jealous of Your Failure will open on Monday, September 29 and run through Thursday, October 23. A reception for the exhibit will take place on Thursday, October 2, from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. An exhibition catalogue, documenting the included works and also offering a curatorial statement and exhibition essay, has been produced. All events are free and open to the public.

“In the beginning, I asked the participating artists to submit a work that they felt was a ‘failure’ in their own studio practice,” said Schriefer, from Moline, Illinois. “I was thinking about this idea of failure and how other artists position themselves with this term in their own practice. I wondered what it would be like to have artists come together in a show where the discourse of failure is already implied. “

Exhibiting artists include John Phillip Abbott, Timothy Bergstrom, Valerie Brennan, Todd Chilton, Ryan Travis Christian, Bill Conger, Paul DeMuro, Austin Eddy, Andreas Fischer, Ted Gahl, Richard Galling, Benjamin Gardner, Ethan Gill, Shara Hughes, Stacie Johnson, Bob Jones, Brian Kapernekas, Judy Ledgerwood, Marcie Oakes, Michael Rea, Nina Rizzo, Steve Ruiz, Cordy Ryman, Trew Schriefer, Peter Shear, Geoffrey Todd Smith, Jason Stopa, Michael Wille, and Scott Wolniak.i'm jealous of your failure
