"Baroni's one-man ‘Badge Show’ from 1981 is a fine illustration: this exhibit consisted solely of Baroni walking around his hometown of Forte dei Marmi with white overalls encrusted in badges, themselves designed by participants in the Mail Art network of the time. While the exhibition was explicitly intended as a showcase for the works of 200 different artists, it also furthered the individual intentions of Baroni himself: ‘every day at 3 p.m., I covered the short distance from my house to the Forte dei Marmi Municipal Art Gallery, as an ironic statement against the gloomy and provincial cultural policy of my town […] I do not like the usual gallery show arranged for the usual small crew of art freaks; I prefer to work for a non-art audience, so I performed my 'live show' for the fun of smiling passer-by.’” rhizome.org

I enjoyed the pun, and when I asked recipients to send me a dollar bill to share in my publication costs, Ray Johnson was right there, circling the ME in America on the one dollar bill. Some understood.” Janssen, Ruud: Mail Interview with Carlo Pittore, iuoma.org, 1995
