Outpost for Contemporary Art’s “Post-Postcard” show

Deadline: December 7, 2006

Download the entry form.

Outpost for Contemporary Art's "Post-Postcard" show is an annual open-invitational exhibition for small-format work that challenges artists to stretch the parameters of media and conceptual strategies by doing what they do best—subvert and manipulate the theme to their own ends. Artists are encouraged to submit small format multiples—whether that be a series of handmade paintings, sculptural objects, or a stack of production run postcards. Artists of all mediums are eligible to participate.

December 8–10, 2006, hundreds of small format editions will be installed in boxes on shelves that run along the outpost's walls. During this time, the venue will be transformed into a bazaar-like bargain-hunter's paradise.
