Curated by Adam Carr

We’ve Got Mail is the second exhibition in a series that examines the history of MOSTYN and its building, and how that history is tied to events beyond its context, locally, nationally and internationally. This exhibition responds to the context in which it takes place, a former postal sorting office into which MOSTYN’s galleries were expanded in 2010.

We’ve Got Mail, of which there will be four exhibitions between now and 2017, will introduce some of the finest examples of artists and artworks that have utilised postal mail, as well as recent instances of its use.
The exhibition will also present original artifacts, documentation and ephemera from the gallery’s previous use as a Royal Mail sorting office as well as from the history of the Royal Mail itself. On view will be a selection from the exhibition Designs on Delivery - GPO Posters from 1930 to 1960 by The British Postal Museum & Archive, archival photographs of the Royal Mail and a collection of stamps from the past to the present.
