6x4” is an exhibition that explores the postcard as a distinctive artistic medium in its own right.
Artist-designed postcards are small, intimate, unique pieces to be either distributed or collected by individuals. Artists’ postcards, however, are not only about creating images on a blank canvas. Artist-manipulated postcards explore the artists’ interaction with existing postcards, manipulating imagery by collaging found materials, drawing, painting or cutting into the surface. The exhibition, 6x4”, provides an opportunity to explore the potential of this form through artist-designed or artist-manipulated postcards.
In 6x4" presents over 400 postcard artworks from more than 100 artists worldwide who responded to an open call. The exhibited works employ a variety of techniques including drawn, typographic, photographic, printed onto and manipulated images and address subject matters from conceptual to humorous. Many are single works but there are several series included.
