press release

We've Got Mail is the second exhibition in a series that examines the history of MOSTYN and its building. This exhibition responds to the context in which it takes place, a former postal sorting office into which MOSTYN's galleries were expanded in 2010.

We've Got Mail, of which there will be four exhibitions between now and 2017, will introduce some of the finest historical and recent examples of artists and artworks that have utilised postal mail, as well as original artifacts, documentation and ephemera from the gallery's previous use as a Royal Mail sorting office.

A booklet accompanies the exhibition and features texts by Adam Carr, Visual Arts Programme Curator, and by MOSTYN's Director Alfredo Cramerotti. It can be ordered by contacting

*On the occasion of this exhibition, Jonathan Monk has produced a new edition exclusively for MOSTYN. Titled Picture Post Card Posted From Post Box Pictured, it is part of a series of postcard pieces, which to date includes those made for venues in New York, London, Brussels and Paris. Each version of the edition depicts an image of the closest postbox to the gallery that it is produced for. After purchasing the postcard, the artist will write the address and message that the purchaser would like, together with his signature. The postcard will then be posted from the postbox pictured on the postcard, which in MOSTYN's case is directly next door to the building.

Participating artists: Robert Barry, Gabriele De Santis, Jan Dibbets, Ane Mette Hol, Jonathan Monk*, and Kirsten Pieroth
