Trinidad and Tobago Love for Hyperallergic

For the past three months Hyperallergic has been inviting it's readers to post to them any form of mail art. Those submissions received so far have been included in an exhibition entitled Presents: Three Months of Mail Art for Hyperallergic HQ at Northside open studios, from the 17th -29th June 2011 in Brooklyn, New York.

 According to Hyperallergic's website, the show "will include mail art in the form of sculpture, installation, video and works on paper. The show’s catalogue will be in the form of a ‘zine."

"Co-curated by Kate Wadkins and Hrag Vartanian, Presents will draw on the 100+ mail art works that have been sent to Hyperallergic since our initial request for submissions to our Mail Art Bulletin in March 2011. The show will include everything from practical jokes to prayer/envelope flags. They represent a range of materials and subject matter all emphasizing the tangible communication from one individual to another."

My submission was a quick love note, playfully expressing some 'Tobago Love' .... along with a matching minicard holder and T&T flag envelope.

Clockwise: Minicard holder, 'love' note and envelope.
