Call for mail art about bodies

Hello, my name is Aca and I am a visual artist in graduate school.

I’m coordinating a mail art exchange on the theme of bodies (however you relate to that word).

state of the mail

In case this may be of use or interest - I found that the auction site Delcampe has a dedicated Virus page that lists various countries together with a brief description of the state of their snail mail and links to their postal authorities sites.  I followed along to Royal mail and they have a long list of countries updated every day. Russia is listed as closed for business and Germany listed as #problematical' but Spain seems to be open which surprises me given the news from there.  Most…

It's awfully annoying to get mail that's been butchered by the postal service - especially a piece of mail art.

​Well, you know what they say, "Sh*t Happens!" Yes, it does happen, but you can't help thinking about the time and care that went into making the mail…

Please look at the Arty Slide International Group which I started in 2012. It was as Mini as I could think of then. We held 2 good Slide Art exhibitions in France. I still have the Arty Slides (somewhere!) that IUOMA colleagues contributed. Bianca has died, alas. I have gained a Stidio and moved to bigger bits of art.

Here is the text that started it all:…

Once a year mail from James Chester

An origami folded envelope/MA arrived from James.  The inside is a calendar page with lovely bits of paper glued down.  Could be a comment on the current lockdown, maybe just a visual image.  Thank you for the intriguing design!

A time for Collaboration

During this time of social distancing and quarantine I have been looking for more projects to keep myself busy. My son Jackson who is 11 years old has been spending substantially more time drawing. I walked into is room a week back and saw these fantastic monster drawings he was doing on post it notes.  I snatched one unbeknown to him and decided to turn it into a rubber stamp. I was THRILLED with the result! I showed him and he was so excited, asking, if I keep drawing monsters, will you…

Artistamps from Adam Roussopoulos

I will never think of Boondocks in the same way.

Adam included a transcript from his family history which brought these stamps to life. Thanks for sharing with me, Adam.
