[BKARTS] CBA Opening reception Friday April 11

Please join us on Friday, April 11, 2008 6 to 8 pm for: 



Mapping Correspondence


Mail Art in the 21st Century


This exhibition invited artists, who in turn invited additional participants, to submit work 


via the postal service, creating a network of communication that reflects the complex 


and varied meaning of the book, mapping, and social networking in the 21st century. 


Mail art is a democratic genre outside of the traditional system of art consumption 


through commercial galleries. In addition to the contemporary work, the exhibition will


feature an historical timeline, as well as work by some of most influential artists and 


collaboratives of the movement, including Ray Johnson, Buster Cleveland, Dick Higgins, 


and vintage Anna Banana, on loan from Robert Warner, Scott McCarney, Barbara Moore,


Gordon Simpson, Marilyn Rosenberg, Franklin Furnace Archive, the Davi Det Hompson 


Archive at VCU, among others.
