Attend Treviso Mail Art exhibition on 22 April 2011

Published: Mon Mar 21 2011

Mail Art as a cultural movement evolved during the 1960, with groups of artists not wishing to be involved in the commercial art gallery scene deciding to produce artworks which could be sent through the international post system.

Still a major alternative movement in the art world, groups mainly communicate online but still hold exhibitions, often in places where artworks are rarely shown.

The Treviso exhibition is a rerun with new submissions of the New York original on the book, held in 2009. Not just two dimensional art, but music, three dimensional objects and textile art are sent through the mail, and the movement still has a popular following, attracting both the curious and the committed to the art shows.

Treviso is a busy city, with its airport hosting mainly low-cost flights for holidaymakers heading for Venice. Hotels near the airport are often booked up, with those attending the exhibition advised by to reserve rooms at Treviso Airport hotels before arrival to save being disappointed.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head at, says, "The spring season in the north of Italy is a popular time for holidaymakers to visit before the heat of summer sets in. As such we recommend early booking of both flights and rooms as a result, especially if arriving for a specific event."
