Olympic Design

As olympic fever rises to an all time high, many of you (like us!) have probably already had enough of the hype and just want to escape before it’s even started.  However there’s lots more than just sporting events taking place this summer, including the London 2012 Festival, a cultural programme of events and exhibitions to celebrate the very best of British artistic talent.

To celebrate the Olympic and Paralympic Games, London 2012 has commissioned twelve leading contemporary artists to create a series of limited edition and poster prints.  Showing at Tate Britain until 21st September, the exhibition features specially commissioned prints from Martin Creed, Anthea Hamilton, Howard Hodgkin, Chris Ofili, Bridget Riley, Rachel Whiteread, Fiona Banner, Michael Craig-Martin, Tracey Emin, Gary Hume, Sarah Morris and Bob and Roberta Smith.

The works are available to buy as both posters (prices start at £7.00) and limited edition screenprints.

The free exhibition runs 21st June – 21st September at Tate Britain, London.
