One can confidently say that more postcards have been sent from, rather than to, the seaside resort of Brighton. However, it’s never entirely one-way traffic. The Postcard Show opens Friday 9 February, 6pm – 8pm at Gallery DODO and is showing postcards that have been sent to the gallery by 25 artists. These artists share a consideration of the postcard as an art object in itself —the artwork is the postcard rather than just on it—and utilise, in varying ways, its recto/verso and image/text form, the everyday process of the postal service, and engage with the postcard’s conventions.


Gallery DODO is an artist-led exhibition space situated on the south stairway inside of Phoenix Art Space. Visitors must pre-book a free, timed slot in advance of their visit. Please email dodoinformation@yahoo.com or message @aproposdodo on Instagram to book an exhibition visit.
