Description:The SMS Portfolios were a collaboration between William Copley and Dmitri Petrov, which they published through their Letter Edged in Black Press. Involving some of the most important artists of the twentieth century, and exemplifying the community ethos of the ’60s, SMS bypassed traditional institutions to distribute the artist’s work directly to its audience. Six portfolios containing eleven to thirteen objects were produced in editions of 2000.
Correspondence is a series of four letters that H.C. Westermann sent through the mail to William Copley. Inside each envelope is a different drawing typical of Westermann with personal handwritten notes.
