Event description
We are celebrating ARTISTS RESPONDING TO ...'s 1st birthday with an exhibition event like no other, and everyone is invited!

About this event

Join us at our Private View of The Postcard Project Exhibition, where you can view up-close the 200 eclectic artworks and meet some of the artists involved in such a powerful and uplifting project.

At the beginning of November 2020, and the start of the UK’s second national lockdown, ARTISTS RESPONDING TO ... sent 200 postcards across the UK to 200 artists. These artists were invited to reflect on the year 2020 and create artwork directly onto the postcards.

The artistic responses in the project range from paintings, drawings, lino prints, textile artworks, collages, photography and much, much more. These artworks reflect on experiences of COVID-19 as well as environemntal, political and social issues or triumphs.

2020 and the begining of 2021 has been extremely unpredictable, consumed by a global pandemic, environmental turmoil and political warfare, but we have also experienced community, unity and action. We have all been through many physical and emotional challenges or changes, and The Postcard Project demonstrates a strong, inspiring and uplifting sense of resilience and community.

Seeing how much every artist has been affected in such different ways has really put contemporary life into perspective. Each postcard artwork responds to a different personal experience that we can all relate to. They are raw and honest visualisations which shed light on everything these past 18 months have thrown at us collectively, and although they are small in size, they are hugely powerful.

The Postcard Project Exhibition is a fantastic opportunity for us all to come together and reflect on the past 18 months. We also want to use our Exhibition as an opportunity to celebrate the easing of national lockdowns, acknowledge our societal resilience, and remember loved ones we have sadly lost.

ARTISTS RESPONDING TO ...'s The Postcard Project Exhibition marks what will become an incredibly historical period of time, and this event will definitely be one to remember!

This event is ticket only to ensure we can provide a safe environment, so book your ticket before they sell out!

We cant wait to meet you and toast to new beginings.
