PADIGLIONE UCRAINA | invito Mail Art

URGENTE
PADIGLIONE UCRAINA
progetto di Mail Art di Ruggero Maggi
con la collaborazione del Museo Dinamico della Mail Art e del SACS di Quiliano

Anche la MAIL ART deve far sentire la sua voce… ognuno di noi è consapevole di ciò che sta succedendo e di ciò che sta provando sulla sua pelle il popolo ucraino.

SEI INVITATO ad inviarmi DUE lavori MONOCROMATICI
un lavoro AZZURRO l'altro GIALLO (i due colori della bandiera ucraina)
formato max A4 – tecnica libera

da spedire (NO raccomandate, si consiglia Posta1)
entro il 30 aprile 2022 a:
RUGGERO MAGGI – C.SO SEMPIONE 67 – 20149 MILANO
(nel caso di spedizioni con corriere indicare: consegnare da lunedì a venerdì dalle 8.30 alle 17.00)

Con i lavori ricevuti comporremo in segno di pace una grande, immaginaria bandiera ucraina.

Nel 2018 avevo presentato per l'inaugurazione del Museo Dinamico della Mail Art a Quiliano un'enorme bandiera della Pace. Questo atto può ritenersi quindi come un prolungamento ideale di ciò che fu fatto allora.
Sei anche invitato fin d'ora ad intervenire all'inaugurazione, di cui invieremo a tutti i partecipanti la comunicazione.
Un abbraccio a tutti voi.
Ruggero

n.b.: Tutti i lavori pervenuti a Maggi saranno inseriti successivamente nell' archivio del SACS di Quiliano. Un particolare ringraziamento a Cristina Sosio che attualmente lo dirige.

URGENT
UKRAINE PAVILION
Mail Art Project by Ruggero Maggi
with the collaboration of Dinamic Mail Art Museum and SACS of Quiliano

Even MAIL ART must make his voice heard… each of us is aware of what is happening and what the Ukrainian people are feeling on their skin.

I INVITE YOU to send me TWO MONOCHROME WORKS
one work BLUE and the other one YELLOW
(the two colors of the Ukrainian)
max A4 format - free technique
DEADLINE: 30 April 2022
send to (NO Recommended Post, for shipping use preferably International Priority Post):
RUGGERO MAGGI – C.SO SEMPIONE 67 – 20149 MILANO - ITALY

At installation level, we will realize in sign of Peace by the received works a large, imaginary Ukrainian flag.

At 2018 I presented a huge flag of Peace for the inauguration of the Dynamic Mail Art Museum in Quiliano. So this act can be considered as an ideal extension of what was done then.
You are also invited right now to attend the inauguration, of which I will send notice to all participants.
A hug to all of you
Ruggero

n.b.: All the works received by Maggi will be subsequently included in the Quiliano SACS archive. A special thanks to Cristina Sosio who currently directs it.

Time Capsule - Hungary


 

CURRENT CHALLENGE –  until end of 2022

https://mailasmile.org

Hello everyone:)

I am opening a new mail art call. Read about mail art here. The topic is ‘Time capsule’. I invite you to create a postcard which tells us, (and to the future generations) what are the things you enjoy the most in your life. I am fascinated by each and everyone’s different personality. Whenever I meet someone, I always try to listen carefully, and instead of judging things that seem strange to me, or sound a bit out of the ordinary, I simply acknowledge that we are all different. Which is okay. It is okay to be different, and I am excited to hear from you:)

HERE ARE THE DETAILS:

It is difficult to make exact plans during this uncertain period, but I do hope I can exhibit the postcards in 2023. If I can’t make that happen, I will definitely share photos of the entries online, here on the website. In case I receive sufficient amount of postcards (around 100 pieces), I will register a proper Time capsule. The time capsule will be registered at the International Time Capsule Registry website. You can browse the map and see if there are any registered time capsules around you. Here is the home page of The International Time Capsule Society.

Thank you for participating. I am super excited to read your postcards:)

Lots of love,

micu

The Mama Remple Mail Art Exhibit - USA


 

MAIL ART CALL!
Deadline April 10th, 2022

The Mama Temple Mail Art Exhibit

Theme: Motherhood: Artfully Challenging the Narrative, Deconstructing the Good Mother/Bad Mother Stereotype
JENNY SOUP, THE MAMA TEMPLE MAIL ART EXHIBIT
P O BOX 765
SANTA MARGARITA, CA 93453
No size limit, all mediums welcome, DOCUMENTATION TO ALL.
(If you send something with your mailing address, I will include it in the documentation unless you specify otherwise.)
Your contributions of art, stories and experience will be displayed in The Mama Temple, a mobile art installation. One of the goals, through this collaboration of Art and Story is bringing healing and reconciliation to ourselves and others, about trauma, awakenings, truths and repressed emotions we hold on to about our own motherhood experiences.
What we perceive as positive and negative views of Motherhood intertwines. Such views are lost and found in this collaboration. The Mama Temple can compel the viewer to rethink preconceived ideas about the very nature of motherhood.
