postcardwall is once again exhibiting its entire collection to date at VEGAS Galley, Bethnal Green. Offline & on the wall with a twist, this exhibition will also exhibit a selection of artists that inspired the wall, showing their new work alongside the remembered image.

Exhibiting artists Katie Elder, David Anthony Hall, Sorcha O’Brien, Ann Pitkin, Olympia Polymeni, Roy Wright & Gwen Yip.

postcardwall is a blog about art inspired by postcards. Begun in 2009 by Sophie Hill, there are now over 300 postcards ‘on the wall’ and all will be exhibited along with their ‘blurb’ in an exhibition that is just as much about words as it is about art.

Taken from contemporary exhibitions as well as historical collections, each postcard is written about to promote and remember both fleeting and permanent displays. With postcardwall’s aim of creating a platform for all kinds of art, postcards come from a range of exhibitions and galleries — from MA graduate shows to institutions such as the National Gallery – with their words amounting to over 70,000 of art history and contemporary criticism. Words are added not to judge, but to elaborate and provoke further interest and discovery.
