Art on a Postcard - The Hepatitis C Trust

Art on a Postcard Winter Auction 2020

We are delighted to announce the return of Art on a Postcard’s (AOAP) Winter Auction. The last six months and the global pandemic have seen so many changes to the way we work but we are excited to bring back our most popular annual auction.  Out of the two hundred and thirty artists taking part this year, highlights include the Paraguayan artist Faith Wilding, known for her feminist performances and installations in the 70s, the Dutch polemical artist Erik van Lieshout, British Anj Smith whose intricately rendered paintings explore issues of identity, eroticism, mortality, and fragility; the critically acclaimed British artist Ryan Mosley who has recently taken part in the group show Radical Figure, Painting in the New Millennium at the Whitechapel in London and Saint Lucian born artist Winston Branch whose accolades include a Guggenheim fellowship and whose work is held in the collections of many of the world’s top galleries including The Tate.    
This auction will focus on The Hepatitis C Trust’s helpline which is staffed entirely by people who have had hepatitis C. The helpline has become a key component in the current Infected Blood Inquiry the largest public enquiry in British history, which was launched to investigate why infected blood products were being used to treat NHS patients prior to 1992. Helpline manager Samantha May is providing supporting evidence to the Inquiry team based on statistics and common facts drawn out by the numerous calls to our helpline over the years. The number of calls from people who have received infected blood during transfusion and subsequently been misdiagnosed for years only to find they have cirrhosis or liver cancer have snowballed and keeping up is increasingly difficult.

This auction will focus on The Hepatitis C Trust’s helpline which is staffed entirely by people who have had hepatitis C. The helpline has become a key component in the current Tainted Blood Inquiry, the largest public enquiry in British history, which was launched to investigate why infected blood products were being used to treat NHS patients prior to 1992. Helpline manager Samantha May is providing supporting evidence to the Inquiry team based on statistics and common facts drawn out by the numerous calls to our helpline over the years. The number of calls from people who have received infected blood during transfusion and subsequently been misdiagnosed for years only to find they have cirrhosis or liver cancer have snowballed and keeping up is increasingly difficult.

‘The helpline one of the most difficult and important jobs at The Hepatitis C Trust and the Trust. In the coming months we expect to be inundated with calls as the Tainted Blood Inquiry is set to be the biggest Inquiry this country has seen. The generosity of the artists who contribute to the auction will go a long way to raising both awareness and funds and ensuring there are fewer unnecessary deaths of hepatitis C’ - Samantha May

To find out more about the work of the helpline team and their involvement in the Infected Blood Enquiry, listen to our Art on a Podcast episode with helpline manager Samantha May. 

The Infected Blood Enquiry trial resumes 22nd September 2020

Please do not bid on artwork in our Art on a Postcard auctions if you intend on selling the artwork after you have purchased it. This auction has been organised for charity and all artworks have been generously donated by the artists to raise money for The Hepatitis C Trust. When the work produced for the charity is sold on the secondary market it damages our relationship with the artist and prevents us from fundraising.
