I'm just interested to see how many mail artists in the UK right now. Are you one?

Some stamps that me and Vittore Baroni in Italy collaborated on a couple of years ago.

So ... where next? Because I'm in the West Midlands, I think, "Ooo - this would sit well in The Ikon, The New Art Gallery Walsall, Ty Pawb (in Wrexham), ....".

Mark Pawson did a lovely long rambling talk at the PV of the exhibition and said in effect that these things look very nice in vitrines and framed up beautifully but mail art really is "taking part" and you can't just show a tiny fraction of it  and expect people to undertsnad what it's like to receive things in the post every day for 40 years and all the interactions that go on "behind the scenes" - the scenes being many networks and many "nodes" and every mail artist has their own "node" that is different from everybody else's. It says it's a "glimpse" and thats what it is.

I do get the irony - I really do!

Glad you enjoyed it Jennifer. There is a lot to see - we keep spotting things we'd put in the exhibition and forgotten about ourselves!   We had to leave a lot of good stuff out too which is a shame. They promised us more cabinets but they didn't materialize!  Was the bowler hat shaped post box in place? Did you get a chance to play with the rubber stamps?

I saw your exhibition today, Michael! I was stunned! I could not believe just how much there was to look at. 

Because I only heard about mail art a few months ago, this was perfect for me - instant history, and an art-equivalent of putting names to faces. Can't believe what I've stumbled into.
