The Exhibition Initiative recently curated “The Mail Art Show,” a selection of works from the thousands available in the Oberlin College Library Mail Art Collection housed in the Art Library. Mail art is a worldwide cultural movement that began in the early 1960s and reached its peak of popularity in the 80s. It involves sending visual art through the international postal system in an effort to create a network of artists. Below are some photographs from the opening November 12th.
