IUOMA exhibitions 2013


IUOMA exhibitions 2013

In 2013 the IUOMA was 25 years old. There was no central exhibition, but all members were encourages to make their own (large, medium, small) exhibition, and to ask members to send them IUOMA stuff for that exhibition. This groups was a central point for starting those projects. Each project will be owned by a member. Have a look if you like the challenge.

Once a project was decided it will have its own discussion and projectnumber. The owner of the project can start his/her own page in this group (add a page) to document the steps of the project.

Now the IUOMA is heading to 30 years in 2018........

Hi All

I just want to update the group on the status of my Mail Art Call to celebrate IUOMA's 25th anniversary. I have received over 50 entries so far, mostly from Europe, North America, South America, & Asia. I have made arrangements to display the mail art at the Book Arts Jam on October 19, 2013 in Palo Alto California. I hope to have local mail artists join me at the event.

All entries have been uploaded to my IUOMA photo stream and my blog. The 6 entries by Jon Fsoter have been bound in a booklet and images can be viewed on my IUOMA photo stream and on my blog. I've really enjoyed receiving the entries and sending mail art in return. My thanks to all who participated.

Please participate in an International Mail Art Exhibition I am organising in June on the themes of Phones, Post Boxes or anything to do with telecommunications.

My friends Eddy & Annette Duprey recently bought an old British telephone box and moved it -- at great expense and effort -- from the South of Wales to the South of France. And now this iconic traditional red phone box stands in somewhat isolated splendor in their garden.

To celebrate The Box's official opening on 14 June, 2013, I'm organising a Mail art Exhibition, as part of IUOMA's 25th Anniversary celebrations. Works received will be placed on and in the phone box.

Details of the Exhibition are as follows:

THEME: Phones, Phone Boxes, or anything to do with Telecommunications

DATE: 14 June, 2013. (It's a small phone box...and a small exhibition!)

SIZE: Anything -- but postcards preferred

TECHNIQUE: Free. Anything goes -- drawings, paintings, collages, assemblages...it's up to you (as long as they will fit in or on the Box).

VENUE: The British Telephone Box by the swimming pool, Chez Duprey, 9 Rue Jacques Prévert Emeraude, Sigean, France

DEADLINE: 10 June, 2013

CONDITIONS: No prizes, no jury, no returns, etc


Val Herman, 1 Rue de la Vieille Fontaine, F-11130 Sigean, France.
