Aire Place Studios Postcards Exhibition is Online and In Your Homes
About the event
Our online interactive postcards exhibition is live! View the exhibition here!
Our project idea centres around community engagement and creativity during these challenging and unprecedented times, in which many creative practitioners are struggling with the financial and practical implications surrounding COVID-19. This process of creative documentation and community engagement appeals to us as a means of cataloguing our community’s thoughts and fears, messages of hope, and general experiences at this significant point in our history.
We have specifically chosen to communicate the project and its responses through postcards because of their tangible form, in a time where the world has become increasingly reliant on virtual, two-dimensional connections. The postcard as a souvenir of an experience, a communication tool, and as a memoir of our connections with the physical world echoes our intention to document and archive.
The exhibition on our website is in conjunction with a physical exhibition at Aire Place Studios in 2021. We will be displaying the 16 postcards along with our community submissions that everyone has the opportunity to take part in.
Get your hands on our postcard project! Featuring 16 artists selected to take part in #APSpostcards which is funded by LeedsInspired. You can get your copy for a suggested donation here. In every postcard pack is also a blank postcard for you to take part in this project!
We are hoping will use these donations from to make a limited edition book. If successful we hope to print enough for everyone as a memento as well as be able to give copies to local libraries and community groups.
