Storm Thorgerson"I guess we try to do a performance to echo that given by the musicians, but often in a remote place which then needs to be recorded/photographed or nobody would bloody see it!" - Storm Thorgerson.

April 2nd 2010 sees the opening of a month long exhibition at Idea Generation Gallery in London which sounds fascinating. "Storm Thorgerson: Right But Wrong - The Extended Album Art of StormStudios and Hipgnosis" looks at some of the events, exstallations, sculptures, images, drawings, and ideas behind Storm Thorgerson's 42+ year career as one of the pioneers of original commercial design. This retrospective is not only an exhibition of Storm's most celebrated covers for the likes of Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, but also offers a unique insight into the otherworldly and incongruous work Storm is carrying out today.

Alongside some of the most iconic images from his seminal career, the exhibition will include previously unseen sculptures, sketches and writings from Storm. Right But Wrong will provide an in-depth account of the artist and the processes behind some of his most acclaimed works. Especially for Idea Generation Gallery, Storm will present a number of brand new site-specific installations, including ambitious reinterpretations of a few of his most renowned pieces, and a programme of special events including live body painting, workshops and a psychoanalytic investigation of Storm's motives. Crikey!

The exhibition runs until May 2nd 2010. The gallery is at 11 Chance Street, London E2, and is open from Monday to Friday, 10am - 6pm, and at the weekend between 12pm - 5pm. More details at
