Art on a Postcard Summer Auction 2021

  • Gemma Peppe

Art on a Postcard is celebrating the 20th anniversary of The Hepatitis C Trust with an auction of original artwork by leading contemporary artists, including Anish Kapoor, Jordan Wolfson and Margaret Rose Vendryes. All the money raised will be donated to the Trust's campaign to eliminate hepatitis C by the year 2030.

We're delighted to announce the superb line up for our Summer Auction.

2021 sees the twentieth anniversary of The Hepatitis C Trust and they have packed a massive amount into those twenty years. The Trust has prided itself on its innovative approach to charity work. As well as building the Art on a Postcard brand as a fundraising tool, they have set out to make themselves obsolete by campaigning to eliminate hepatitis C by 2030. In addition to playing a huge part in getting the NHS England to announce a unique elimination deal in 2019, The Trust played its part in getting 194 countries to sign up to elimination by 2030.

To help celebrate this extraordinary feat the line-up includes conceptual artist Anish Kapoor, Jordan Wolfson whose enigmatic, and at times provocative, work investigates the darker side of the human condition. Art historian and instigator of The African Diva Project, Margaret Rose Vendryes, has set out to celebrate and connect Black female singers with their ancestorial roots; Shezad Dawood whose multi-media works are inspired by his varied cultural heritage and Marina Adams whose work explores colour form and movement.
24 June – 8 July 2021

Bidding starts at £50 on each lot


The artwork will be presented online and available to bid on

We will also be exhibiting the work both in-person at Hoxton Gallery and online via gowithYamo

The Hepatitis C Trust
The Hepatitis C Trust is the national charity for people with hepatitis C. It is a patient-led and patient-run organisation; most of its board, staff and volunteers have had hepatitis C themselves. It is committed to eliminating hepatitis C in the UK by 2025. Its strategy is based around pillars of better prevention, increased diagnosis and treatment for all.
It has established strong partnership models of working with substance misuse and homeless service providers across the UK. In substance misuse services, it delivers staff training, peer led education about the importance of testing and availability of new treatments, and personal one-to-one support from initial diagnosis through to treatment. It runs a range of support services, including a confidential national helpline run by staff and trained volunteers who have all had personal experience of living with hepatitis C.
Helpline staff also provide patient-centred responses via email and run a designated prison freephone helpline service for prisoners across the UK. Its policy and parliamentary team works across the UK Parliament and the devolved nations to ensure hepatitis C stays firmly on the political agenda. It also publishes a range of reports and resources on aspects of the hepatitis C care pathway.
