End 2014 there was a lovely exhibition at the MoMa library in New York. Yopu can still find the information on: http://www.moma.org/interactives/exhibitions/2014/analognetwork/
It is a very interesting moment. After exploring the Fluxus collections they have, they are now also exploring the Mail-Art resources they already have in their collections. Off course I was honoured they also showed some things they have from me. During the Mail-Interview I always sent them samples of the mail-interviews for their library, and used all kind of envelopes for that. One of the mail-interviews was with Clive Phillpot. He was the former director of the MoMa Library, so that made the connections easy.
Title of the exhibition: Analog Network: Mail Art 1960-1999
Mail art—broadly defined as artists’ postal communication—emerged in the early 1960s from Fluxus, Nouveau Réalisme, and Conceptual art practices and expanded into a decentralized, global network. This exhibition traces the growth of correspondence networks, shows politically oriented works, documents discourse about the practice, and concludes with mail artists’ adaptation to the Internet.
The exhibition is organized by Jennifer Tobias, Reader Services Librarian, MoMA Library
