Performa, in collaboration with the Estate of Ray Johnson, presents “Please Add To and Return To,” a mail art activation celebrating the life and work of Ray Johnson.

See #PleaseAddTo submissions on social media:
Instagram
Twitter

One component of Johnson’s mail art practice was his distribution of “templates” with the instructions “Please Add To.” The artist would send these photocopies of his original drawings en masse via USPS, instructing recipients to “Return To Ray Johnson” or forward to someone else entirely. Upon return of work, Johnson would typically photocopy and recirculate the altered versions or add them to his archive.

As a special homage to Johnson in the year of the 20th anniversary of his passing, several of the artist’s mail art “templates” will be placed back into circulation. This will serve as a call to action for the next generation of Johnson enthusiasts and a point of entry for the rest of the public. Performa asks all participants to simply “Please Add To and Return To” (via USPS or though social media, using the hashtag #PleaseAddTo) – in celebration of the life of the man that The New York Times described as "one of the most revered underground artists of the last half of the 20th century.”

Templates will be placed as ads in monthly art publications, college newspapers and distributed digitally as PDFs. Altered templates will be accepted on a rolling basis by Performa, and ultimately posted to a page on The Ray Johnson Estate’s website. The first template circulated will be Johnson’s The Starn Twins, upon which recipients are invited to complete a fractured pair of the artist’s signature “bunny” drawings. This appeared in the April 2015 issue of Art in America and is also available by clicking here. Click the images above or visit Performa's website for additional templates.

Performa is a multidisciplinary non-profit arts organization, founded by art historian RoseLee Goldberg in 2004, dedicated to exploring the critical role of live performance in the history of 20th-century art and to encouraging new directions in performance for the 21st century, engaging artists and audiences through experimentation, innovation, and collaboration. Part of Performa's mission is to present a biennial of visual art performance in New York City that illuminates the critical role of performance in the history of art as well as its enormous significance in the international world of contemporary art. The Performa 15 biennial dates are: Nov 1-22, 2015.

Call for Mail Art Project

I am dealing for many years with depictions of angels, as an artist and as an art historian. The angelic hierarchy described in the Middle Ages by Dionysius the Areopagite, later seduced us the Renaissance and Baroque artists almost with the Angel creature. Today we often hear, "I do not believe in God, but in angels always". Looking for an idiom or saying in connection with the angels, I found the term "tongues of angels" very exciting. Born of the vernacular, it serves us to look for modesty and critical examination of everyday life. Should they warn us of something? Maybe.

I am looking forward of an interpretation of the term " to spoke with angel tongues"

Conditions for participation:

All works of art are to be sent by post.
All techniques on paper are permitted.

Ich beschäftige mich seit vielen Jahren mit Engelsdarstellungen, als Künstlerin und als Kunsthistorikerin. Die Engelshierarchie wurde im Mittelalter von Dionysius Areopagita beschrieben, später verführten uns die Renaissance- und Barockkünstler beinah mit dem Engels-Geschöpf. Heute hören wir oft: "Ich glaube nicht an Gott, aber an Engel schon". Auf der Suche nach einem Idiom oder Spruch in Verbindung mit den Engeln, fand ich den Begriff "Engelszungen" sehr spannend. Aus der Umgangsprache geboren, dient es uns nach Bescheidenheit und kritischer Betrachtung des Alltags zu suchen. Soll uns der Vergleich vor etwas warnen? Vielleicht.

Ich freue mich auf eure Interpretationen über das Thema „Engelszungen“.

Bedingungen für die Teilnahme:

Alle Kunstwerke sollen per Post zu mir gesendet werden.

Format: 10 x 15 cm bis max. 20 x 30 cm

Hi.  I got a request for mail art but I don't want to put this woman's address out onto the public internet.  If you would like to send her some mail, please pm me and I'll share it and you are free to share it privately with anyone you know who may want to join in.  Thanks so much! Here's the original message that was sent to me: 

Let me start off by apologizing for being long winded here. This post is very difficult for me. So I’ll just come out with it. My cousin just found out she has breast cancer. She just turned 42 yesterday. My faith is strong and I know she will beat this. But that doesn’t keep me from being completely terrified for her and what she is about to go through. I’ve decided to send her something by mail everyday to help keep her spirits up. From ATC’s to stickers. Just something to show that I’m thinking of her everyday and not just when I’m with her."

From September 19 to 27, 2015, Richmond, Virginia, USA, will host an amazing event for bicyclists. The cyclists will come from all over the world. I'm very excited about this. The prediction is that we'll have 450,000 visitors to our small city during that time.  Read about it HERE.

So, what does a Mail Artist do? She starts a Mail Art call! I've enlisted two venues, so far, where work will be displayed in West Main Village  and Carytown near the routes or where visitors will circulate. I'd love to have lots and lots of Mail Art to exhibit.

I'll be posting entries on the blog http://bicyclesrva2015.blogspot.com, as they arrive in the post.

Vostell Monument is an interdisciplinary art project that reinterpret and pay tribute to the work of Wolf Vostell: VOAEX. Viaje de (H) Ormigón por la Alta Extremadura (1976). The project is a collaborative initiative to perform in different places around the world.

Anybody can take part in it. Some simple instructions are sent to each participant.The work has to be realized including the toy car sent and adding some concrete. The final result has to be photographed and returned with a brief description indicating where was taking and the artist data.
