Show and Tell at Printed Matter Virtual Art Book Fair 2021

Special Special is delighted to participate in Printed Matter’s first Virtual Art Book Fair from February 24-28, 2021, with a presentation of our Show and Tell series.

Conceived in 2019 as an exhibition that is contained entirely within an email, Show and Tell delivers a new experience with curatorial texts directly every month to the inbox of subscribers of Special Special’s newsletters. Digital projects by artists and designers range from interactive games (Online Museum of Multiplayer Art by LIKELIKE) to kinesthetic applications (Typatone by Lullatone & Jono Brandel). As most of us now rely on the digital realm to stay connected, Show and Tell gains new meaning as we find alternative terrains to keep creativity alive.

Until now, all twenty-two exhibitions have only existed in inboxes around the world. At Printed Matter Virtual Art Book Fair, viewers are invited to experience Show and Tell projects from our archive and sign up to receive subsequent exhibitions in the series in the new format of a mock inbox. Check your emails to open new portals to intriguing discoveries.

Free and open to the public. Register for opening day festivities.
