This retrospective exhibition spans four decades of Chuck Welch’s involvement in the mail art community, a niche of the art world where artists used the postal system as part of their process for making art. Welch’s archive spans a time when communication was changing as more and more people began using the Internet. Welch’s work and archives illuminate a global social network of artists as a historical mirror to social media today.
