Anna Banana explores the historical and contemporary implications of mail art and highlights a unique approach to humour, disguise, and the democratic potential of print media and critique. The show will feature Anna Banana's artiststamps, mailers, postcards, posters, and costumes made over a forty-five year period.

“The Banana paradox means that A. Banana’s work enters your house much more intimately than movies or mass-produced postcards. Unlike artworks in the marketplace, Banana’s mail art is addressed to a network partner (or recipient). How many so-called artworks have the recipient’s name and address inscribed on them?”
