A Book About Death: Islip Art Museum, New York

Very pleased to be including an image in this international group show, entitled 'A Book About Death', at Islip Art Museum in New York. My piece is handmade, using ink on paper.

I've printed an edition of 500 postcards for the exhibition which runs from 14th September to 2nd November, 2019.

A Book About Death will take place at Islip Art Museum, Brookwood Hall, 50 Irish Lane, East Islip, New York 11730. USA.

This is a global show celebrating the life and work of the late, underground American artist Ray Johnson, the father of the mail art movement (1927-1995) The first 'A Book about Death' exhibition was curated by Matthew Rose in 2009.

28 worldwide ABAD shows have followed over the past 10 years. This exhibition, in 2019, is the tenth anniversary edition - and quite possibly the last in the series.

The whole of this 10th Anniversary ABAD Exhibition has been requested by a mail art museum in Paris,  France and by the Islip Art Museum for inclusion in their permanent collections. It will also be sent to MoMA in New York City to stand with the 2009 show they already have in their permanent collection.
