The Postcard Revival wants to show off great cities. Great cities like Jo'burg. We see postcards as travelling art exhibitions - a way to take artist's impressions of textured and interesting cities from behind gallery walls and out into the world. We like how postcards can do that, how they can be passed from hand to hand, posted all around the world and kept, generally for longer than a facebook update. So we approached some of the city's most exciting and talented artists, photographers and illustrators to depict Jo'burg in just one image. We took these artworks and with careful attention to fine-quality and beautiful design, transformed them into limited edition postcard prints. These prints form the first of The Postcard Revival's collection.
The original large-scale artworks and their postcard prints will be for sale at our one-night-only exhibition on Thursday the 16th of May 2013, from 6 pm. The exhibition will take place on the top floor of the beautiful Barbican Building, aptly overlooking the old Rissik Street post-office. Exhibition space is limited so your RSVP is essential to make sure your name is put on the guest-list. Access, directions and parking details will be emailed to you in response to your RSVP.
