Anna Banana

To Whom It May Concern:

Anna Banana is a project that 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 artist stamps, mailers, postcards, posters, and costumes made over a forty-five year period.

Anna Banana is a historical overview, yet an urgent and contemporary response to our current socially saturated and mediated world. It a meaningful show for Kunstverein, that continues our co-operation with significant Canadian conceptual artists (Kunstverein worked with Glenn Lewis in the past and will work with Image Bank in the near future.)

Kara Hamilton, founding director of Kunstverein Toronto, has initiated this important retrospective of Anna Banana’s long art practice.* The exhibition will travel from Toronto to Amsterdam in October.

There will be an artist walk-though and preview (members only) at 5 pm prior to the official opening on October 21st at 7 pm.

Anna Banana runs until January 13th 2018.

Sincerely,
Kunstverein, Amsterdam
