The World of Tomorrow _
Over the past few weeks, I've been pretty busy with degree shows, moving house, graduating etc. I've also had the pleasure of working with Malcolm Garrett on the World of Tomorrow exhibition that's been running for the past 2 weeks in the Holden Gallery, Manchester. I worked alongside Jonathan Buschenfeld and we were tasked with designing the captions for the work as well as helping to design the vinyl.
The exhibition featured examples of Malcolm's collection of childhood memorabilia that he has generously donated to MMU's Special Collections library. There were countless James Bond novels and Gerry Anderson TV annuals, not to mention an enormous collection of New York World's Fair items and 10 original Marilyn's by Andy Warhol. Alongside this sat some of Malcolm's own work and the intention of the exhibit was for the audience to spot influences that Malcolm may or may not have sub-consciously picked up on as he grew up.
