Karnival of Trash Exhibition Opens with Work by John M. Bennett & Diane Keys

JMB - DK - 8.14.2016 - 10011

Redepaired – a collab book by John M. Bennett (Columbus, Ohio, USA) and Diane Keys (Elgin, Illinois, USA). This is the first entry in the Karnival of Trash 2016 international mail art exhibition. Redepaired is published by Luna Bisonte Prods.

I am pleased beyond measure to open the Karnival of Trash exhibition I am curating with an extraordinary package sent by John M. Bennett. The jewel in the crown of this mailing is a copy of Redepaired, a collaborative book by John and Queen of Trash Diane Keys. The contents are breathtaking. So on the occasion of the impending Karnival of Trash (September 27-30), I will share the complete edition. Click pages to enlarge:

I definitely endorse the testimonial by Olchar below. Luna Bisonte is one of the great avant/post-avant publishers and has strong ties to the mail art network.
