Alexander Rodchenko (1891-1956) is one of the great figures of early 20th-century avant-garde art, and also one of its most versatile practitioners. Half a century after his death, The Hayward presents the first major exhibition in the UK of Rodchenko’s photographs, featuring some 120 prints and photomontages, as well as poster and magazine designs. The exhibition traces the development of Rodchenko's photography over two decades from the early 1920s, a period when he revolutionised the medium by pioneering a new vocabulary of bold and unusual camera positions, severe foreshortenings of perspective, and surprising close-ups. Take a look - This could be your last chance to see it as the exhibition closes on the 27th of April...
