SUSHI's POST-Card Show

If you haven't checked out SUSHI's new space yet, this weekend would be a good time to do that... Located on the corner of 11th & J, next door to Luce Loft, SUSHI hosts a wide variety of art, music and performanced based evenings. The description of their next show sold me immediately; read more about this Saturday's Post-Card show below.

Postcards are purveyors of visual information. Often times the brief missive on the stamped side of the card references the image on the other side "Wish you were here!" or "X" marks the spot. It's a short cut and a snap shot. Postcards are, so to speak, the original "Text Message"; a way to say that you are thinking of someone; a friendly wave at a distance. At this point postcards may seem anachronistic; a vestigial tail on snail mail. But, like vinyl records, super-8 movies and V-8 engines, they have a resilient charm and poetic resonance that seems to resist the march of insistent progress.

Fourteen artists make work in the context of cheap, disposable, anachronistic postcards. Participating artists include Eleanor Antin, BULBO, Kelly Coyne, Randall Christopher, Nina Katchadourian, Wendell Kling, Erik Knudsen, Jean Lowe, Hugo Lugo, Kim MacConnell, Irma Sofia Poeter, Einar and Jamex de la Torre, and Allison Wiese.
