Mailart Exhibition: Critical Mass!

Posted on February 23, 2010 at 12:24am 0 Comments

A friend is converting her warehouse in Eagle Rock, California (Los Angeles) into a “pop-up” art space for the months of April and May.

Part of the exhibits and performances is a mailart show I am organizing, on the theme of “Critical Mass”.

So get your creativeness in gear and make some fabulous thing that can be mailed to the warehouse called pLAyLAnd.

Everything sent will be exhibited, no entry fee, no return of artwork, every artist will get documentation… Continue

Hey CreativeThing - I just saw your homage to Kurt Schwitters on the A1 mail archive  and just wondered if you have any left? - A colleague at work told me that I should really look at his work and I thought that it would be great to get a mailartists perspective on it.

A tribute for the city of Portogruaro through a project involving art through mail. The keywords chosen as the theme are the motif of its foundation, joined in a common flow.

border between earth and water,
the river harbor and the trade routes,
the channels and the gardens of the palaces,
a constant reference to a change in system, material and colour.

not only of goods but also of colours and scents,
artistic and architectural influences,
mutual knowledge, therefore culture.

a condition of consent expressed in gesture, the conclusion of an agreement,
a trace superimposed on many others:
whose meaning is beyond the sum of the parts.

Project by Rizoo Group, Tiziana Baracchi and Pro Loco di Portogruaro
Format and dimension of work:
square of maximum size 21 X 21 cm
No e-mail

No returns, no jury, no fee, no sales

Exhibition in Portogruaro, 2010
documentation online:

Deadline to be received March 31, 2010

Any luck in the job search? Tried to track down some old parts to get things rolling, my Lemond has ultegra 7 spd parts, very hard to find. Will steal parts from my wife's road bike that has very few miles on it. Wheel trueing, hub packing and new bearings, chain rings, cassette, shifters, new cables and housings, new tires, and on and on should keep me busy this weekend. I'll have parts for an assemblage!!! Did you ever read Alfred Jarry's 'Supermale'? Makes the Tour de France look like a sunday ride!
