Postcards From the Edge is a Visual AIDS benefit show and sale of original, postcard-sized works on paper by established and emerging artists. All works are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The works are signed on the back and exhibited so the artists' signatures cannot be seen. While buyers receive a list of all participating artists, they don't know who created which piece until purchased. All proceeds support the programs of Visual AIDS.
Visual AIDS utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving the legacy -- because AIDS IS NOT OVER!over 1400 participating artists including:
Vito Acconci, Michael Alago, John Baldessari, Ross Bleckner, AA Bronson, Aaron Cobbett, Wayne Coe, Louise Fishman, Robert Flynt, Peter Griffin, Ann Hamilton, Mary Heilmann, Scott Hug, Simen Johan, Brian Kenny, Jeff Koons, Scooter LaForge, Glenn Ligon, Marilyn Minter, Slava Mogutin, Yoko Ono, Gio Black Peter, David Reed, Richard Renaldi, Robert W. Richards, Deam Sameshima, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Bill Viola, John Waters and many more.
