International Mail Art Ex...

Exhibition: November 17, 2011 – January 8, 2012
Submission Deadline: October 1, 2011 (postmark deadline)

Artists from all over the world are invited to contribute their work for the Richmond Art Gallery’s Mail Art Exhibition and Swap. This exhibition is intended to be a cultural exchange, where artists exhibit their works and receive new works as part of a swap. This shared enterprise is free from the rules of the art market, and yet we ask artists to respond to the theme of “economy” in all its forms.

Mail Art (aka Postal Art) is an art form where artists exchange artworks and correspondence through the mail to one another. To continue on in the tradition of this democratic art form, all entries received that follow the guidelines on the entry form will be exhibited.
