From Gatefold to Download - Revolutions
23rd July - 9th October 2011
This exhibition charted the history and development of the album cover from its early days in the 1930’s through to present day. The show explores how cover design has influenced and subsequently been influenced by popular culture, and responded to technological developments.
The exhibition features artworks that have become era defining images and have forged the reputations of some of the leading lights of the design world. It also raises the question about the future of design within the music industry and its development within the digital age.
This was a touring exhibition from the Civic Barnsley.
This was produced in partnership with: Woodhorn Museum and the Civic, Barnsley
