Art & Correspondence from the Western Front
The catalogue of the 1979 show Image Bank Correspondence Exchange at Western Front, Vancouver, Art & Correspondence from the Western Front contains work from five West Coast artists—Kate Craig, Eric Metcalfe, Michael Morris, Vincent Trasov and Glenn Lewis—correpondents to Image Bank, the collaborative concept of Michael Morris and Vincent Trasov during the years 1969-1979.
In addition to Trasov and Morris’ work with Image Bank, the book presents a selection of Trasov’s projects as Mr Peanut; Glenn Lewis’ New York Corres Sponge Dance School of Vancouver Reunion; and documents from Kate Craig & Eric Metcalfe’ project Dr. & Lady Brute.
The book is an excellent documentation of the work of the era, merging mail art and performance, and approaching document and the image with a queer bent.
