'The Mail Art Collection' collaborative brief is currently on display on the First Floor of the University Library (1B).

Thank you to all that submitted to the ‘Mail Art Collection’ call out.

The brief was to submit a piece of artwork responding to the theme of ‘EXCHANGE’, to be contained within an A5 envelope and posted.

The works will now form part of a touring exhibition, starting at the University Library, prior to moving to the Dental Academy, and Eldon Building coinciding with the Graduate Show 2016.

A catalogue of the works can be viewed here:


The Mail Art Collection, is a project launched by MA(Res) Creative Industries student Oliver Tubb.

The project aims to archive and promote an extensive collection of Mail Art donated to the University by noted artist Patricia Collins almost a decade ago.
