2010’s Mail Me Art: Medium Without a Message was the follow-up to the successful 2008 Mail Me Art: Going Postal with the World’s Best Illustrators and Designers. We are proud to announce we had over 700 new pieces of mail art to view and buy at the Red Gate Gallery (London) in July 2010. The Medium Without a Message exhibition showcased an amazing collection of envelopes and boxes from around the world decorated by some of today’s most talented illustrators and artists. What makes the work special is that every single piece of art was sent through the postal system, exposed and on view as regular mail. We displayed the art at the exhibition in its delivered state, as handled by the postal workers during transit! This was the last chance to see the collection as a whole before part of it was sold to private collectors.
The Mail Me Art exhibition, held during April 2009 in London, showcased work from around the world and provided visitors with the opportunity to view and buy the artwork that made the project possible. Visitors came from around the world to visit – some from as far afield as the United States, Guatemala, Japan, Brazil and Spain! Photos from the 2009 exhibition can be seen below.
