Contest: Postcards from Photographers wanted

11 Feb

Exhibition Call: Photography and the postcard.

Mark Adams is currently curating an exhibition at PS Mirabel Gallery in Manchester and inviting photographers to participate in an exhibition on the theme of ‘transmission.’ The exhibition explores photography as a narrative, transitional activity with an emphasis on themes concerning location, mobility and psychogeography. The exhibition will also explore the medium itself and alternative presentations of photographic images. Part of the exhibition will involve a presentation of postcards as an alternative form of display.

Photographers are therefore asked to send postcards for consideration for exhibition.

Artists and photographers are encouraged to use the postal system to send a postcard that can fit within a standard postbox size. The postcard will feature photographic image(s) on the front in traditional A6 landscape format with the back left free for stamps / postal marks. We have a particular interest in works that explore the following themes:  states of change, nomadism, ambulatory practice, wanderlust, tourism, architecture, a sense of place, the non place, urbanism, psychogeography, the terrain vague, culture, mobility.


What is important is that the work shows visible signs of being in transit – postal stamps indicating location date etc. Photographers are also encouraged to include any marks or writing on the back of the postcard which will provide a personal stamp, signature or mark making as an indication of culture, identity or place from which the postcard is sent. Found postcards might also be appropriated by the artists / photographers submitting. The only restrictions are that the images are photographic in nature and the standard A6 size. Also the definition of the postcard can extend to an A6 print that contains space on the reverse for a message and stamp.
