The Postcard is a Public Work of Art
London, UK: X Marks the Bökship, 2014
Edition of 300 numbered copies
Increasingly becoming the world's leading expert on artists' postcards, Jeremy Cooper (whose 2012 book Artists' Postcards: A Compendium can be viewed here) compiled and catalogued this collection of sixty postcards by contemporary artists. The book serves as a catalogue to the exhibition of the same name, which ran at X Marks the Bökship, from the 23rd of January to the 1st March, 2014. The title ‘The Postcard is a Public Work of Art’ is taken from a 1996 postcard designed by Simon Cutts and printed by David Bellingham.
The bulk of the reproduced cards were made for the exhibition, which includes work by Bellingham, Cutts, Ruth Claxton, Daniel Eatock, Ruth Ewan and Dan Griffiths, Ryan Gander, Susan Hiller, Georgie Hopton, Sara MacKillop, Elizabeth Magill, Imi Maufe, Hansjörg Mayer, Elizabeth McAlpine, Ingrid Berthon-Moine, Jonathan Monk, Molly Rooke, Colin Sackett, Sarah Staton, Holly Stevenson, Peter Sylveire, Erica Van Horn, and many others.
