Come along to this lunchtime talk to discover more about our exhibition Received Dissent: An American Mail Art Project, currently on at the Graves Gallery.

The SMS Portfolio, displayed in its entirety for this exhibition, represented a collaboration between some of the most important artists of the 20th century and can be viewed as a time capsule relating to this extraordinary period in American art.

The talk will be led by Martin Hinchcliffe, who has loaned the SMS portfolio to Museums Sheffield, and art historian, Andrew Hodgson. They will discuss selected pieces from the portfolio, including works by Yoko Ono, Roy Lichtenstein and Richard Hamilton, and the works’ relationship to the time in which they were produced.
