LTRHDS Exhibition

Home > Melbourne > Art | Exhibitions
Event:
It's easy to take the alphabet for granted, embedded as it is in our daily lives. That fact makes the exhibition Letterheads (also written LTRDS) all the more fascinating. The premise? Twenty-six artists from around the world have created a work in their chosen medium on a single letter of the English alphabet. The diverse backgrounds of the artists involved means pieces will range from cartoons and graffiti to fine art and graphic design.

Debuting in Melbourne and running for a month at the CBD's warehouse-like café-gallery 1000 £ Bend, Letterheads will move on to Sydney, Taiwan, and Tokyo from there. A limited-edition book based on the exhibition is in the works as well. For now, there are interviews with and samples from some of the artists involved at the exhibition's blog. Geographically, the artists hail from America, Japan, Australia, England, and Brazil, which should further diversify the results of this intriguing project. And don't be surprised if Letterheads reintroduces you to the marvel of language itself.
