Carlo Pittore 1943 - 2005

Sad news just recieved of the passing of Carlo Pittore- a king pin of the mail art scene back in the 80's. Mark Bloch kindly sent this photo of himself and some friends outside the window of the Galleria Dell Ochio in New York that Carlo ran back then. It was the final show before Carlo moved to his beloved Maine to paint. He will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure to know him and to get his mail.

A catalogue Carlo put together for the ME festival in the 80's.

PLG - Collage

Not sure how much of a collaboration this is but Peter L. Grosse in Germany has made a collage from mail he was sent by Peter W. Kaufmann and Pips Dada.. 2003.
