postcardwall began from a collection of postcards, inspired by art from exhibitions and galleries across the world. The wall of postcards evolved into a wonderful wallpaper of visual memory and in 2009 Sophie began a blog to remember each one.
Postcards come from contemporary exhibitions as well as permanent collections, demonstrating the wealth of art available and to promote and remember inspiring but fleeting displays. postcardwall creates a platform for both historical and contemporary art, with postcards taken from established institutions as well as small galleries. Reading across the wall gives the opportunity to recognise art, as well as to discover.
Each week Sophie adds a new postcard to the wall. Nearing 365 postcards – that’s one for every day of the year – and there is now collectively over 70,000 words ‘on the wall’.

postcardwall is written and run by Sophie Hill, freelance journalist and curator
(though it all began with postcards).
