[BKARTS] Artist Talk: Friday May 2, 2008 at 6:30pm - Center for Book Arts

The Center for Book Arts
28 W. 27th Street 3rd floor
New York, NY 10001

Greetings from the Center for Book Arts: 

Please join us this Friday, May 2, at 6:30pm for a special Panel Discussion: “Mail Art as Contemporary Art Practice: Process, Networking, Collaboration.”


We’re extremely fortunate to be hosting this panel discussion with five contemporary Mail Artists: Robert Ajar, Meg Belichick, Asha Ganpat, Ken Montgomery, and Robert The. Work by each panelist is included in our current exhibition, Mapping Correspondence: Mail Art in the 21st Century, on view at the Center through June 28.  Champe Smith, curator of the exhibition, will be moderating the panel.


It’s going to be an exciting evening - we hope to see you here!

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.
