CORY REYNOLDS | DATE 8/10/2020
Saturday, August 15 at 3PM PDT / 5PM CST / 6PM EST, join Artbook @ Hauser & Wirth LA Bookstore and Inventory Press for a live stream with artist Mungo Thomson, in conversation with Tosh Berman, discussing Thomson's new book, Mail. This event is free with registration here. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to order a copy of Mungo Thomson: Mail with free shipping in the U.S.
Mungo Thomson asked The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles to forward all incoming mail to a gallery, where it accumulated unopened during the 4-month run of the 2018 exhibition, Stories for Almost Everyone. Thomson’s publication, Mail, is a temporary archive of one museum's incoming mail. The publication is an homage to a shipping product catalog.
In a time of pandemic and onslaught of privatization of the public sphere and the nation's public land, our event celebrates The United States Postal Service, which is on the frontline for democracy. We pay homage to mail art, which through the international postal service was, and is, the outlet for sharing art in a parallel universe to the Art Industry.
WE SUPPORT THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE
ALL COPIES OF MAIL WILL BE SENT VIA USPS MEDIA MAIL
Order a signed copy of Mail and choose to have the book shipped in protective packaging or, in homage to mail art, choose to have your copy sent without protective packaging, so that it will retain the marks of its journey through the postal system, and therefore be both different from and the same as all the others. It is your copy to choose your Mail experience.
