about This catalogue marks the first Mail Art project conducted as part of the ‘Mail Art Collection’ at the University of Portsmouth, UK. The ‘Mail Art Collection’, is a project launched by MA(Res) Creative Industries student Oliver Tubb. The project aims to archive and promote an extensive collection of Mail Art donated to the University by noted artist Patricia Collins . The brief was to submit a piece of artwork responding to the theme of ‘EXCHANGE’, to be contained within an A5 envelope and posted to the University. The works formed part of a touring exhibition, starting at the University Library, prior to moving to the Dental Academy, and Eldon Building, coinciding with the Graduate Show 2016. This activity will hopefully be the first of many within the University. The following catalogue has no precise order.

If you are interested in the project, please feel free to contact: mailartcollection@gmail.com.


acknowledgments Thank you to all who submitted to the project, the support of the School of Art & Design (UoP) for coping with the incoming post, and the individuals at the three venues for allowing us to exhibit the works.


With an additional thanks to Aggie Davies and Greta Friggens for their assistance with the library installation (above).
