Particulates Matter

Particulate Matter (PM) in the air can cause or worsen lung disease and heart disease, especially in the elderly and very young. In the USA, tens of thousands of people die prematurely due to PM every year, and countless more suffer. PM is a much more serious problem in developing nations with fewer pollution controls. Please help increase awareness about PM by participating in the mail art exhibition "Particulates Matter".

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:


An exhibition is to be held in Sacramento, CA on Earth Day 2009. Documentation will be provided online. Other exhibitions and future publication of material is possible depending upon opportunities and the response to this call. No jury, no fee, no returns. Please send art with your name, address, and email to:

Grass Valley, CA 95945

Deadline to be received is March 31, 2009.

Bizarre Cities: Edition n° VII (2009)

Dear friends and mail artists,

Although I only just published this year's edition of Bizarre Cities (http://mailworks.blogspot.com/), I like to already announce the theme for the next issue. This time I like to explore the theme of "surveillance".
All the global conspiracy theorists, CCTV collectors, state security lovers and street art activists among you are cordially invited to contribute.
The rules are the same as always: please submit 25 copies of a visual artwork (try to remain creative and avoid the "I want to be in" b/w photocopy, please. Bizarre Cities always contains a good number of "traditional" art techniques, like etchings, woodcuts or drawings). Texts are most welcome and could be submitted electronically.
For this theme I could also imagine receiving some short videos which would be burned on a CD and published together with the magazine.

I would suggest that your contribution should arrive not later than 31 December 2008.

Please let me know if you are interested. This makes it easier for resource planning and will avoid surprises at the censorship offices.

I am looking forward hearing from you.
Regards, Mailworks@Bruxelles

Mail Art Call - Queer EQuality

Mail Art Call - Queer EQuality

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
Policy Violations:
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.

Taller-Exposición (convocatoria)


Hi all: So far it seems that the opening of The Last Book will take place on November 18th in the National Library of Spain in Madrid. I have 530 collaborations and it would be nice if there were even more. I extended the deadline until October 15th, so, if you have friends of interest for this, please share the call for collaborations with them. I'll keep you informed of any developments. Thank you and all the best, Luis

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:

Luis Camnitzer

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.

the Metropolis of Destructon

The idea is to create a fictional city of the distant future known as the Metropolis of Destructon through original mail art and correspondence art. Technique is open, but the subject matter should add an element to the creation of this fictional city either through illustration, architecture, graphic design, artistamp, sequential art, poetry or pros. All submissions are through the mail and should be scanable for presentation on www.post2destructon.blogspot.com
