The Connaught Christmas Tree

November 22, 2018–January 6, 2019
The Connaught, London
www.the-connaught.co.uk

Inspired by the fairy lights typically used to decorate Christmas trees, Michael Craig-Martin has used 12,000 rainbow-hued lights to transform the Connaught’s Norwegian spruce, which stands almost 30 feet (9 meters) tall, into a dynamic and distinctive sight to celebrate the holiday season. The lights run in intricately placed single strands from the tree’s top to its bottom, and the colors continually change, shifting in a carefully choreographed pattern.

Michael Craig-Martin has transformed the exterior of a former Macy’s with his largest mural to date, Palm Beach Parade. The retailer abandoned the site earlier this year, and this project aims to transform the struggling shopping center in which the store was situated by putting culture at the forefront.
