Postcards From the Edge, Benefit for Visual Aids at Metro Pictures

Held at Metro Pictures, 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 for $75 each. 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 work of Visual AIDS, utilizing contemporary art for AIDS advocacy and historicizing the work of HIV-positive artists while offering career support.
Contributing artists included Vito Acconci, John Baldessari, Nayland Blake, Olaf Breuning, Marcel Dzama, Karen Finley, Joan Jonas, Jeff Koons, Louise Lawler, Hans Haacke, Emily Jacir, Tony Oursler, Cindy Sherman, Kiki Smlith, Wolfgang Tillmans, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Kara Walker, Lawrence Weiner and many many more.
