Latest Storm Thorgerson exhibition now on in London Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Sunday, 11 July 2010

Liquid DSOTM - 2010 versionFor The Love of Vinyl, a celebration of the acclaimed design work of Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell as commissioned by renowned musicians and bands of 1970's such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Black Sabbath, Yes, UFO, Peter Gabriel and 10cc, is the subject of an exhibition now running at Gallery@oxo on London's River Thames.

The free exhibition, running until July 25th, 2010 from 11am to 6pm daily, is a wonderful look at a range of iconic vinyl covers, a companion event to the superb book "For the Love of Vinyl" - the first book to document Hipgnosis output in detail, focusing on over 60 package designs – from cover to label – written about in entertaining detail by the men who created them. Also included in the book are short essays by musicians (such as Pink Floyd's Nick Mason), artists (Peter Blake) and fellow designers (Paula Scher) on their favourite covers.

The pictures especially chosen for this exhibition represent some of Hipgnosis' best known work from the 1960's, '70s and '80s. We were at the launch evening (which showed off the new "Liquid Dark Side Of The Moon" image to the left) and the exclusive pictures which follow give an idea what visitors will see...

As ever, click the thumbnails to launch a larger version of these pictures. The new, 2010 version of "Liquid Dark Side of the Moon" is a revised look at the iconic cover, wonderfully colourful in the flesh and superbly detailed. Many of you will recall the first swirly interpretation of this work that was shown off last year, to much acclaim, and Storm has clearly been hard at work with continuing the theme...
