(sub)Missive preview

As promised here are the details of the (sub)Missive exhibition:

(sub)Missive is the culmination of a mail art project in which artists from the UK, Europe, US, Canada and Australia each collaborated with an artist partner to create a new book work. Using the social networking forum as a platform for collaboration, artists investigated the dissemination of ideas with particular reference to (mis)communication and power relations.

Taking the hierarchical construct as a brief, each participant devised a set of instructions ranging from the single word to the diagrammatic and distributed them to their collaborative partner. The results of this experiment will be displayed as part of the 12th International Contemporary Artists Book Fair from Friday 6th till Wednesday 18th March 2009 @ Corridor Gallery, School Of Design, University of Leeds, LS2 9JT.

Preview: Friday 6th March 6-8pm
Exhibition continues till Wednesday 18th March
Opening times: Mon-Fri 10am till 5pm
An e-flyer with details of the full programme is available at
