Using artwork designed exclusively for Tate by artist and signwriter Archie Proudfoot, this Alphabet of Art poster highlights 27 key areas of art using expressive typography, from Abstract Art to Larry Zox.
Each letter of the alphabet draws inspiration from the Tate collection, and has been designed in response to an artist, movement or both, inviting you to take a guess at your favourite letter’s influence. It’s part of our exclusive collaboration with artist Archie Proudfoot, whose work uses the techniques and aesthetics of traditional signage to explore our relationship with language.
Underneath the main alphabet, the text reads:
A – Abstract expressionism, B – Bauhaus, C – Cubism and constructivism, D – Dali and dada, E – Expressionism, F – Lucio Fontana, G – Gorilla Girls, H – David Hockney, I – Islamic art, J – Jasper Johns, K – Kusama and Kruger, L – Roy Lichtenstein, M – Mondrian, Matisse and Magritte, N – Art nouveau and Newman, O – Orphism, P – Picasso and portrait, Q – Mark Quinn, R – Mark Rothko, S – Surrealism, T – Turner and Triptych, U – Underground art, V – Vorticism, W – Rachel Whiteread, X – Group X, Y – YBA, & - Gilbert & George, Z – Larry Zox.
The poster measures 70 x 50 cm, including a white border. It’s printed on 150gsm silk paper, and we work with only UK based PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forestry Certification) and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified suppliers for all our print products.
