Postcards for Perec
Organised by MAMDP alum Linda Parr: Artists from twenty-two countries responded to the call to create the Two Hundred and Forty-three Postcards in Real Colour. A slideshow video was presented at BABE for The Lost Weekend and a catalogue is forthcoming.
The exhibition has launched its tour at Bower Ashton Library and will be travelling throughout 2022 (the 40th anniversary of Perec’s death) and 2023.
‘Georges Perec parodied these postcard messages in ‘Two Hundred and Forty-three Postcards in Real Colour’, dedicated to his fellow writer and friend Italo Calvino. These imaginary missives are now becoming a reality, postal postmodernists on a Grand Tour via Perec’s Postcards.’
