This exhibition features work by members of The Postcard Collective, a network of individuals who share their artwork with each other in the form of postcards.
To send a postcard expresses a fundamental human desire to connect with other people. In the digital age, the physicality of such an object -
hand-scribbled notes, clumsily placed postage stamps, damage incurred in shipment - carries a rich narrative that simply cannot exist in cyberspace.
Since 2010, the Collective has grown into an international collaboration involving over 100 artists and is responsible for the journey of 3,600 postcards through the postal system each year. The exhibit will feature the Collective's permanent collection of over 300 postcards, along with the work of five Collective members whose creative work has been influenced by their participation in the project.
