I recently contributed in a Mail Art exhbition of international artists at the Art Park curated by the busy busy Joseph Allen Shea.
A traveling exhibition of artwork that not only arrived through the postal service but is post.
Art Park Gallery 5/11 Banksia Drive, Byron Bay. Australia.
Mail art, widely agreed to have officially begun with Ray Johnson in the 1960’s, and famously practiced by the Fluxus artists, can be dated back to when Cleopatra had herself delivered to Julius Caesar in a rolled-up carpet. Transitions continues this tradition by creating an exhibition that goes on the road.
Celebrating tactile correspondence and continuing the tradition of mail art Transitions is an exhibition that uses the international postal system as process, medium and also exhibition space as unwrapped work is experienced in transit by postal workers in various mail centres the world over.
