Trickett & Webb has designed promotional material – including invitations, posters and a catalogue – for a Peter Blake retrospective, called Commercial Art, which opens at the London Institute on 4 August. The show is a foretaste of an exhibition of sculpture by Blake at the institute in October. Commercial Art showcases the artist’s commissioned work for clients, in both advertising and design, including Volkswagen and Wedgwood. ‘Blake’s work is always an interesting crossover between fineand commercial art,’ says Brian Webb, long-time Blake collaborator and design lead on the project.
The museum will work with research studio Forensic Architecture on the installation, which is inspired by this year’s theme of “emotional states”.
