On Friday, November 14, 5.30-7.30 pm, come to the MoMA Library for an informal tribute to collector, dealer, and artist of “self-historcization” Guglielmo Achille Cavellini (1914–1990).
We’ll have a hands-on discussion of mail art works by Cavellini, then visit the related exhibition Analog Network: Mail Art 1960-1999.
As part of his self-historicization project, Cavellini imagined a 2014 centenary exhibition of his work, to be shown at art museums around the world. Though the exhibitions remained a fantasy, we hope he would have appreciated this event. -jt
