On 13 March 2015 Battersea Arts Centre's beautiful Grand Hall was destroyed in a major fire. To help contribute to the rebuilding process and to celebrate the building itself, thirteen artists have come together to create a programme of imaginary events for the Grand Hall.
This programme takes the form of a limited edition set of thirteen beautifully designed cards, each by a different artist. Only 100 sets will be produced, and all proceeds will go to Battersea Arts Centre.
Artists involved are:
Dan Canham, Paul Clarke, Abigail Conway, Tim Etchells, Andy Field, Lynn Goh, Made in China, Gemma Paintin, Hannah Ringham, Amy Sharrocks, Sleepwalk Collective, Tassos Stevens and Chris Thorpe.
2015, set of 13 A6 Postcards
Please note - postcards will be posted on or after Friday 27 March 2015
