So what is Secret Postcards project all about
Secret Postcards is a very unique sort of exhibition that is not like any other. The artists produce postcard-sized works of art that are exhibited anonymously and can be purchased for a modest sum. It's a concept that is entirely new to the Netherlands: a high-quality exhibition that is easily accessible to the public because it's held outside the museum.
What's important here is the visitor's own perception and interpretation. The exhibited artworks will not be readily identifiable. Secret Postcards challenges the audience to cross the frontiers of their usual way of working.The artists taking part in Secret Postcards have been recommended by a team of four curators from celebrated museums and cultural organisations.
The choice is outstanding and the experience is very refreshing!
