CoolTan Arts are continuing our A Postcard to the World series with an exhbition at Oxford House in Bethnal Green.

This exhibition gives the public the chance to view original postcard artwork exploring feelings about the Olympics and Paralympics.

Visitors will be able to view postcards designed and made by participating artists across London, depicting their memories and celebrating the spirit of London 2012. Art works have been created in textiles, visual arts and sound art with CoolTan Arts participants and facilitating artists Lu Firth, Angelica Fernando, Isa Suarez and Michelle Baharier.

Inspired by the International Mail Art movement, where artworks are mailed, participants use the iconic ‘postcard’ as a blank canvas to create individual artworks. Each postcard aims to tell you something about its sender and their place in time.
