Join collector Martin Hinchcliffe for a special insight into the remarkable SMS Portfolio, an innovative mail art subscription devised by New York based artist, William Copley in the 1960s.
Martin will give you a personal introduction to some his favourite works in the Received Dissent exhibition, currently on at the Graves Gallery, which marks the first time the complete Portfolio has been shown in the UK.
The Portfolio features work by some of the greatest artists of the 20th century, including Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, Roy Lichtenstein, Yoko Ono, Richard Hamilton and more.
The SMS Portfolio has been loaned to Museums Sheffield by Martin Hinchcliffe.
