MAMFAD-X 2016

MAY 6- MAY 29

Twenty artists, 8 States, 7 Weeks, 77 pieces of art, and one United States Post Office...

In late 2015, Bailey Chick and Abby Daleki, two masters of fine arts students at the University of Delaware, wondered what would happen if they recruited students around the country to answer several questions regarding the nature of art and artists: Can art be collaborative even when the artists have never met, or even spoken to each other? How much does proximity matter? And when collaboration happens step-by-step, how does it influence each artist’s mark? And, lastly, if artists are given free reign, confined only by the size of the piece and what can be mailed, what happens to each piece, and the project as a whole as time goes by?

In the end, seventy-seven unique pieces were created—each one reflecting the life, emotional state, technique, talent, geography, and opinion of each artist—and the group as a whole.
