Gerald Scarfe - Tear Down The Wall exhibition[STORY UPDATED] With Pink Floyd's The Wall celebrating 30 years since its release, and 20 years since the Berlin Wall tumbled, it's entirely fitting to hear that Gerald Scarfe's iconic art work is being celebrated in a new exhibition [click thumbnail, right] that runs from September 22nd, right through to November 15th, 2009, in Germany.

Tear Down The Wall will include original illustrations for the album, related concerts, and the film, along with his storyboards from the film, as well as rare memorabilia. The Floyd artwork will be complemented with some of Gerald's other work - political cartoons and satirical portraits.

The Kunstmuseum des Landes Sachsen-Anhalt is located in Halle (Saale), and more information on the exhibition, and the venue, can be found at the official website.

Update following exhibition launch event, and a set of three pictures from the event from Neccropole: It was planned that Gerald would bring two new graphics. However, while he didn't bring anything with him, he spontaneously painted the title of the exhibition on a white wall, marked out with grey paint emulating a brick pattern, instead. Click on the following thumbnails to see Gerald's impromptu titling:
