ARTISTS RESPONDING TO ... The Postcard Project. A book of postcard artworks reflecting on the year 2020. 


At the beginning of November 2020, and the start of the UK’s second national lockdown, ARTISTS RESPONDING TO ... sent 200 postcards across the UK to 200 artists. These artists were invited to reflect on the year 2020 and create artwork directly onto the postcards. The 200 artists visualised their experiences, anxieties and triumphs throughout the year and each postcard presents a different perspective. The works share references to environmental, political and social issues, whilst reflecting highly personal responses to the news and world happenings during this very apocalyptic year. The postcards have a sense of urgency and are a call to action. With materials ranging from oil paints, watercolours, lino-printing, embroidery, collage and much more, this truly is a diverse, stimulating and exciting collection of works.

Gift wrapped in recycled paper. Delivered in 100% recyclable, no-plastic packaging.
