Handel Street Projects is pleased to present Art of the Postcard, exhibition of works by 76 international artists. The exhibition is curated in collaboration with Jeremy Cooper, who over the years amassed a significant collection of artists postcards, which he has donated recently to the British Museum.

For this occasion artists made new diverse works, which fit into our definition of ‘artists’ postcard’ ie, a work of art in its own right, not the reprinted image of something else, explicitly avoiding postcards merely of art work, as well as postcard-sized art not designed to be posted – the first are reproductions, the second small paintings. Almost all the works in this exhibition are unique, the artistic ideas expressed specifically and exclusively as a postcard.
