There are several different elements of the exhibition:
1) Artworks by ten artists whose work engages with the mail system and circulation in interesting ways, to be displayed at Art Exchange. These are: Felipe Ehrenberg, Carlos Ginzburg, Walead Beshty, Cristiano Lenhardt, Eugenio Dittborn, Edgardo Antonio Vigo, Cildo Meireles, León Ferrari, Ray Johnson
2) Send Me a Flower, etc: an open call for mail art works that anyone can participate in. I’ll be posting photos of the work submitted. See the call for works on this blog.
3) A catalogue that will be accessed here as a PDF or sent as a gift-parcel. Designed by artist Milena Galli, it is a little exhibition itself.
4) Some Cut Flowers by David Horvitz is a project done especially for the exhibition in which David sends a flower in a bottle each day. The bottles travel from Brooklyn, New York and will accumulate in the gallery but perhaps they will confiscated by customs officers - a gift for the bureaucrats.
