Invisible art exhibition to 'set imaginations alight'
The Hayward Gallery's new invisible art exhibition is promised to "set our imaginations alight".
By Nick Collins
Ralph Rugoff, director of the Hayward Gallery, has promised it will "set our imaginations alight".
And so his gallery's latest exhibition will have to, considering the fact that every piece of art inside it will be invisible.
From a bare plinth to a canvas painted entirely with invisible ink, the imagination of the paying public will play a decisive role in the success or failure of the show, the first of its kind in Britain.
For £8 visitors will be able to marvel at – or search in vain for – 50 works of "invisible art" by leading names including Andy Warhol, Yves Klein and Yoko Ono.
