The future of the music industry appears to be more reliant on MP3 downloads and iTunes right now, leaving album art as a rare but all-important legacy. In the middle of this gloomy outlook, however, the Idea Generation Gallery presents Right But Wrong – an exhibition in celebration of the influential and prolific album artist Storm Thorgerson.
Storm’s work is as recognisable as the music it accompanies. The iconic stone and metal statues that feature on the cover of Pink Floyd’s album The Division Bell (1994), as well as the memorable prism cover for Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of The Moon (1973), will be among the retrospective of work spanning his 40-year career.
Although some of us may be too young for this particular era of music (sorry) – Storm’s other collaborations include Muse, The Cranberries and Led Zeppelin, all of which have gone down in music and design history. Alongside the bizarre and unearthly images will be previously unseen sculptures, sketches and writings from the artist.
Storm Thorgerson: Right But Wrong, 1 April to 2nd May at the Idea Generation Gallery
