Postcards for the Public

Art & Design

The scenery, as imagined by 60 Britain-based artists, is at London’s Bokship Gallery

Through March 1st, Bokship Gallery hosts a showcase of postcards as imagined by 60 Britain-based artists. The idea focuses on the convention of a postcard, tasking each participant to express their work in the form of a 3 x 5 card that can actually be mailed.

The title of the show, “The Postcard is a Public Work of Art,” is indeed lifted right from a 1996 postcard design stating just that, by Simon Cutts and printed by David Bellingham at WAX366 in Glasgow. Other miniature works include Jonathan Monk’s hole-punched mashup of a typical scenery shot of the Palace of Westminster, a vignette adorning St. Cecilia and a young companion in lampshades, and several more.

Along with the thoughtful exhibit is the show catalogue, which can be purchased at the gallery or online. You may have a harder time selecting your own postcards to mail home, but use the inspiration to your advantage.
