PM is divided into two categories - PM up to 10 microns in diameter (PM10) and PM up to 2.5 microns in diameter (PM2.5). As a play on this, artwork for the mail art exhibition should be approximately 10 cm2 or 2.5 cm2, any shape, or approximately 10 cm3 or 2.5 cm3 for 3-D artwork. Artwork will be exhibited along with a scale model of a human hair (80 cm diameter) to emphasize how tiny these particles are.
Art can be on the theme of PM itself (depicting or made with PM), PM sources (diesel exhaust, wood smoke, industry, etc.), the health effects of PM (asthma, heart attack, stroke), or artwork can simply be 'a breath of fresh air' (no theme, but still meeting size requirements). Any technique may be used ? collage, photography, drawing, painting, artist's stamps, sculpture, assemblage, and so on. All art received will be posted at:

So, here’s the story. Besides planning to get married with my beautiful male lover of almost three years, I recently signed up with zazzle a company that puts your design on things like mugs and US postal stamps, t-shirts etc. I designed a stamp commemorating the California Supreme Court decision to allow gay people to get married.
The stamp was rejected by the US Postal system for their policy which
Incorporates material that is primarily partisan or political in nature.
Incorporates material the primary purpose of which is to advocate or protest any particular religious, social, political, legal or moral agenda of any person or entity.
That’s quite a lot of censorship. Who decides? I just sent another design in and they accepted it. So now we have a queer/gay postage stamp in America. I am selling the stamp and giving half the proceeds to a non-profit called Equality California. You do not have to buy a stamp to participate in the Queer eQuality mailART call, but if you'd like to help support the arts and equality, then buy all means :-)
THEME: Queer eQuality 2008
DOCUMENTATION: Exhibition at Morongo Basin Cultural Arts Council Open Studio Tour 2008 in Wonder Valley, California
RESTRICTIONS: postcards only please
deadline: November 2008 (we're getting the word out before the election.

the last book, luis camnitzer- open call for collaborations
Filed under luis camnitzer
The Last Book- Open call for collaborations A Project by Luis Camnitzer, sponsored by the National Library of Spain
The Last Book is a project to compile written as well as visual statements in which the authors may leave a legacy for future generations. The premise of the project is that book-based culture is coming to an end. On one hand, new technologies have introduced cultural mutations by transferring information to television and the Internet. On the other, there has been an increasing deterioration in the educational systems (as much in the First World as on the periphery) and a proliferation of religious and anti-intellectual fundamentalisms. The Last Book will serve as a time-capsule and leave a document and testament of our time, as well as a stimulus for a possible reactivation of culture in case of disappearance by negligence, catastrophe or conflagration.
Contributions to this project will be limited to one page and may be e-mailed to
or mailed to:
124 Susquehanna Ave.
Great Neck, NY, 11021
The book will be exhibited as an installation at the entrance of the Museum of the National Library of Spain in Madrid. Pages will be added during the duration of the project, with the intention of an eventual publication of an abridged version selected by Luis Camnitzer, curator of the project.
This call is open and we hope that it will be resent to as many potential contributors as possible.
