In All Transparency | Call for Artists
In All Transparency is a socially engaged project that focuses on getting out the vote during the pandemic, the history of voting rights, racial oppression in voting, and the United States Postal Service. The USPS has become a nexus for these issues leading up to the general election in 2020. Through an open call, artists and activists will create mail art aiming to shed light on various aspects of these histories and our current moment. The artists will use translucent materials to create mail art that will be sent in transparent vellum envelopes; when illuminated on a light table, various messages and perspectives of the makers will be transparent. The mail art messages will be photographed and then projected large scale in a loop outside Gallery CA in Baltimore, MD and read by people passing by as we approach the general election. Once documented the mail art will then be sent to a person of the makers’ choosing to encourage voter participation and demand fair elections. These luminous messages might be sent to a targeted voter in a swing state, a family member or politician, for example. In All Transparency engages with the history of mail art during this time of physical isolation and social solidarity.
