Erosion, Death and Secrets

Isn't that a cheery title? That is what todays post is all about though! Or rather, the chance for you to join in a new Erosion Project (think along the lines of Seth's Dis-Co) have your art shown in a Book About Death Exhibition or find out about the Art Secrets being revealed on Seth's blog each Sunday. Interested? Read on:)

The Erosion Bundle Project was inspired by Seth's Disentegration Collaboration project and is similar in nature, excuse the pun. The dates for your calendar are:

January 1, 2010 - place bundle in nature.
In between = share thoughts and photos.
April 15, 2010 - retrieve bundle from nature.
August 1, 2010 - finish art piece using your eroded stuff and rejoice.

The Book About Death is an unbound book exhibition of postcards. Part one is already being exhibited but due to it's success there's an open call for artists to send one postcard or one series of postcards to the organiser for a new exhibition opening 6th of Feb 2010 in Brazil.
The bits you need to know are:
 Individual artists are wanted to submit works, either a single card or a group of cards for exhibition at MUBE.
Ideal dimensions are approximately 6" x 4" either horizontal or vertical orientation, but variations in size are permissible. We would like to ask all artists to be aware that we need to easily install works on the wall, so consider this aspect of the exhibition. Artworks can be handmade or printed commercially. You can mail the card by itself or in an envelope. (Please make a digital capture of the works for your records).

A deadline of January 30, 2010 has been set for reception of all submissions, although we will install any cards received after that date. Digital works are not accepted, sorry. To be included in this exhibition, make a postcard on the theme of death and send it to:
MUBE - Museu Brasileiro da Escultura
Avenida Europa, 218 - Jardim Europa
CEP 01449 000 - São Paulo - Brasil

All works submitted to MUBE will become a part of the permanent collection of the Museum, and will not be returned.
Documentation online of all new works will be made over the course of  the next few months.


Secret Sunday is Seth Apters new project. Be sure to check out his blog each Sunday to find out what arty-secrets your favorite artists have shared. It's also a good chance to discover new artists so there's nothing to loose and everything to gain!

And last but not least, a quick Pulp Redux update! All but one of our books have now been sent and recieved at there respective destinations (although mine was delayed by a search in customs!) and there will be updates on our own blogs as we play. The Pulp Redux blog will be updated when the spreads are completed.
