I’m starting to think about useful research information that could be sent to the Volgograd Museum of Fine Arts as part of the rapidly developing Airmail / aviapochta exhibition.
Part permanent record of artists making work in Coventry now (see my last blog), part resource to fuel conversations and collaborations between the twinned cities and part 2013 time-capsule, the research information will need to tell people from Volgograd about Coventry.
Below is a list that I’ve started of things that might be sent. I’d like you to add to this list, please comment and Tweet me if you’d like.
Also, if you think you have any of these things and would like to send them, please let me know.
