Exhibition “ABC Time”

Until April 10, KGallery will host an unusual exhibition called ABC Time. This event will definitely be interesting for both adults and children!

We all read the ABC in early childhood, and we are unlikely to suddenly want to re-read it. We all know the letters, but we don’t know that the alphabet can be not only a teaching aid, but also a work of art.

The ABC Time exhibition presents the ABC from the other side, collecting graphic masterpieces by Elizaveta Bem, Alexander Benois, Mstislav Dobuzhinsky, Ilya Kabakov and other famous artists. KGallery displays alphabets of the 20th-21st centuries designed by famous artists. In addition to books, the exposition includes individual graphic sheets.

As part of the exhibition, lectures, art breakfasts, walks and children’s workshops are planned. Find out more and purchase tickets on the website.
