MAIL ART CALL: Send Me a Flower, etc.
for the exhibition Intimate Bureaucracies: Art and the Mail
Friday, February 25 - March 26
Send your poetic, loving, tender gestures - mail art, photographs, poems - for our exhibition Intimate Bureaucracies: Art in the Mail. The exhibition is an investigation into the intimate artistic gesture within bureaucratic structures. You don't have to be a professional artist to participate, all submissions are welcome.
The exhibition will run for a month, and during this time the display of mail art works will be in constant flux. The exhibition begins on 25th February and ends on
‘Bureaucracy, as a mode of governmental or corporate organization, depends on officials rather than elected representatives or charismatic leaders. It usually connotes a cold, faceless, and excessively complicated system of administration. It epitomizes the distance between a governing body’s procedures and the needs and desires of its citizens, subjects, or customers.
Intimacy, the close familiarity of friendship or love, by definition depends on a small-scale system of communication. Its warmth, face-to-face contact, and fleeting impact has it often the subject of art and literature.’
The submissions will be exhibited as part of the exhibition Intimate Bureaucracies: Art in the Mail.
All works will be exhibited
