Feminist postcard auction this Monday
Jess McCabe // 2 October 2010
38 postcards by artists, pop stars, actors and other prominent figures on the theme of feminism will be auctioned in London on Monday, to raise money for Feminism in London 2010.
Even if you can’t make it to see the postcards in the one-day exhibition, the Guardian has posted a gallery of some of the postcards going on the auction block, including the pieces by Kate Nash, Julian Opie and Sarah Maple (who is organising the sale). (See also this piece in the art & design section.)
Personally I’m looking forward to see what Jessica Stevenson (off Spaced) and Viv Albertine (from the Slits) make of the theme, which was simply “a postcard about feminism”. Also, comedian Miriam Elia will be the auctioneer!
Anyway, tickets for the exhibition and auction are £6 in advance, or £7 on the door, and money raised goes to help fund Feminism in London 2010 – all the details for where, when and how to buy a ticket are here.
