big_and_small_poster_jpeg.jpgLondon's Idea Generation Gallery are hosting BIG & SMALL, a brand new exhibition of the album cover art of Storm Thorgerson, later this month. Opening to the public on October 21st, and running until November 13th, Big & Small illustrates the vast diversity of format now facing music designers, from billboards to digital downloads and postage stamps. In particular, the show features enormous high quality fine art prints at 5-foot square that are by far the biggest they have ever attempted, of album covers from Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Muse, The Mars Volta et al derived from original art and individually supervised.

The exhibition will also display more manageable sized prints of recent StormStudios work including Pendulum, The Wombats, Younger Brother alongside more familiar works from Black Sabbath, Peter Gabriel, Steve Miller, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

Idea Generation were the hosts of the excellent Syd Barrett: Art and Letters exhibition which took place in March/April this year. The presentation of that exhibition was a great showcase of Syd's artistic endeavours, and we're expecting great things from Big & Small. We'll be reporting back from the launch evening, so will reveal more then. The new exhibition includes interactive installations that allow members of the public to make and take their own versions of certain album covers. Live events will also take place throughout the exhibition making this a truly immersive experience.

The Idea Generation Gallery is at 11 Chance Street, London E2 7JB, and more information can be found at their website:
