‘The Paddock III: Posted’ was initiated by 14 artists who met at the National Art School (Sydney, Australia) with a shared interest in reductive abstraction. It is a format for contemporary artists to address a trichotomy of object, image and virtuality. In contemporary abstraction, the dialogue between object and image is a long-standing convention.

With our mobile devices we collapse the gap between illusionistic space and flatness of surface. Instagram is increasingly a tool for artists and curators who seek to share, debate, reveal and promote aspects of our artistic practices on the liquid screens of social media.

The Posted project provides a space for the trichotomy of object, image and virtual to intersect. In a play upon the changing meaning of what it is to ‘post’, 14 artists in each host city are invited to make a physical postcard (10 x 15 cm, depth variable) with images posted to Instagram, in an expanding global exhibition project. It is a travelling postcard show but is also much more, as it has evolved beyond a static collection into a nomadic platform operating on artist networks outside commercial gallery systems.
