An absorbing new exhibition on the life and work of graphic designer Richard Hollis has opened at Gallery Libby Sellers. Curated by design historian Emily King, the show features over 200 items taken from the designer's personal archive and spans his entire professional career.
During the 1960s Hollis played a key role in the design and visual representation of radical politics, producing posters and pamphlets for a variety of causes. In the 1970s he worked closely with John Berger on the seminal BBC TV series and book Ways of Seeing, one of the most iconic designs of the decade and one that continues to be disseminated at art schools around the world today.Regular clients throughout his career included the Whitechapel Gallery, where he worked closely with curators and artists on the publicity material for exhibitions and books.
The exhibition runs until 28th April.
