Invisible: Art About the Unseen 1957-2012
12 June – 5 August 2012
The Hayward Gallery hosts an imaginarium of art this summer, with a survey of works that explore ideas related to the invisible, the hidden and the unknown.
Don't miss On show (or not) will be the 'air architecture' of Yves Klein, one of the earliest proponents of invisible art; Andy Warhol's Invisible Sculpture, created when the artist stepped on and off a plinth in New York's Area nightclub; Tom Friedman's Untitled (A Curse), a circle of space above an empty plinth on which the artist hired a practising witch to cast curses; and Yoko Ono's Instruction Paintings, a set of typed instructions exhibited on the wall that encourage the audience to create the work in their imagination.
Other major artists to be represented include Robert Barry, Chris Burden, Maurizio Cattelan and Carsten Höller
