Postal-Collage Project No. 1

The Berkeley Commonplace Screening Room and Gallery at The Shuman Block next SUNDAY, FEB. 25, 11 AM-6 PM, will have an open viewing of more than 50 collages, made by 50 artists in a whirlwind around-the-world collaboration.


As one of the contributing artists, I'll be posting extractions from the collages up until the opening this weekend.


See below for more information about the project and stop on by if you are in the neighborhood.


Postal-Collage Project No. 1


50 collaborators, 50 collages, global and local


The Postal-Collage Project No. 1 (2011-2012) is the inaugural endeavor of Round Table [Collaboration].


The project, begun in September 2011, involves fifty collaborators assembled in ten groups, ranging in age from 4 to 82, hailing from the USA, Ireland, the UK, Denmark, France, Germany, and Australia. In February and March 2012, the completed collages will be exhibited in Berkeley and San Francisco, California, respectively.


There are two international groups; eight are USA only, four of which are limited to California. Three groups are made up of children.


This MAP shows the traveling pattern of collages-in-progress as they are mailed around the globe by one of the international groups, an Internet-based social network of multimedia collaborators working under the name, Praxis.


Nine collages will pass through Berkeley (USA), Dublin (Ireland), Wigan (UK), Crewe (UK), Tewkesbury (UK), London (UK), Aude (France), Munich (Germany), and Sydney (Australia). Progress documentation by Praxis can be followed on HERE.


California locations of artists include San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, Walnut Creek, Santa Cruz, El Dorado Hills, Davis, Chico, and Mariposa. Elsewhere in the USA, Portland, Oregon; Elmira, Ithaca, and New York City, New York. Collages are also passing through Hornbæk and Copenhagen, Denmark, and Melbourne, Australia.
