A.I.R. Gallery presents Fe *Mail* Art: 2020 Postcard Exhibition. This year, the postcard show, in response to the Mail Art movement of the 1970s, centered on the theme of personal and political messaging through the mailed art object. Pioneering correspondence artists such as Anna Banana, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Pauline Smith, and Irene Dogmatic, found freedom from censorship in this network, using it to marshall and gather non-normative sub-cultures around identity, politics, and punk.
This exhibition intends to celebrate the history of mail art and call attention to its relevance today, when means of corresponding have proliferated so dramatically and when the physical post has become almost exclusively a means of circulating commodity culture through advertisement and delivery.
