We have a new show: Analog Network: Mail Art, 1960–1999. Come see it in the Cullman Building Mezzanine through January 5.Mail art—broadly defined as artists’ postal communication—emerged in the early 1960s from Fluxus, Nouveau Réalisme, and Conceptual art practices and expanded into a decentralized, global network. This exhibition traces the growth of correspondence networks, shows politically oriented works, documents discourse about the practice, and concludes with mail artists’ adaptation to the Internet.
We’ll be having a related event on Friday, November 14, focusing on mail artist Guglielmo Achille Cavellini. Details to come. -jt

Council removes new Banksy artwork after complaints of racism.

Mural had been painted overnight in Clacton-on-Sea, a week away from a parliamentary byelection.

Banksy has struck again – but an Essex council has struck back, removing his artwork that it said contained “offensive and racist remarks”.
