ULISES CARRIÓN: POST/MASTER
October 16, 2020 — December 4, 2020
Gary R. Libby Gallery
A Selection from the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA) Collection.
Ulises Carrión: Post/Master, curated by María Paula Varela, will be Ulises Carrión’s first public exhibition in the United States. Carrión was a crucial figure in Mail Art, a prominent international movement of the 1970s and 1980s related to Conceptual Art, and in which artists exhibited material they had mailed to one another. The exhibition showcases seven projects from Carrión’s The Big Monster, on loan from the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA) collection. These projects include hundreds of postcards, photographs, letters, and mixed media replies to Carrión’s collective postal works.
