Step into an exhibition that evokes pages from a child’s first alphabet book… but everything is not as it seems; A is not for Apple, but for Umbrella!

One of today’s most influential British artists, Michael Craig-Martin, has embraced digital technology to produce an image bank of everyday objects – a resource he has used to create Alphabet. In this series of 26 vibrant screen-prints, individual letters are overlaid with objects such as a shoe, a violin or an umbrella. Alphabet is shown alongside computer works and prints from Craig-Martin’s Deconstructing series, in which he pays homage to masterpieces by Seurat and Piero.

Alphabet is a Hayward Touring Exhibition from Southbank Centre, London.

The artist will take part in a discussion on Thursday 10th June at 7pm with the show viewing opening at 6.30pm. For details, click here.
