Sgt Pepper artist Peter Blake’s retrospective opens at Tate Liverpool

This news story was sent to me by someone in the UK, and I opened it and instantly got jealous.  Most Beatle exhibits/events almost always take place in the same places.  They’re usually either on each US coast (NY or LA) or in the UK.  I always fume at my location in Ohio when I read news like, just because I really want to see these treasures. 

A Peter Blake exhibition would be high on that list.  You know Peter Blake, the artist who cultivated and curated the Sgt. Pepper album cover among other things.  It seems I will be missing a retrospective of his work (both Beatle and non-beatle related).  To add insult to injury this exhibit is showing at the famed Tate Gallery.  Which going there alone, without Peter Blake would be impressive enough a feat.  It looks like it will be a great exhibition to attend.

Here’s what we’ve read.

A highly influential and original artist, Blake is often described as the godfather of British Pop art and Liverpool’s adopted son. This exhibition will survey his rich and diverse oeuvre, presenting familiar icons as well as rarely seen works. Tate Liverpool’s retrospective will focus on Blake’s two-dimensional work and in particular painting, presenting a diverse body of work from the 1950s to the present day.

 It will include major icons of twentieth century art, such as On the Balcony 1955-57, The Toy Shop 1962 and The Beatles 1963-68. It concludes with the Marcel Duchamp World Series, a project which has recently occupied the artist.

Tate Liverpool on Albert Dock is situated 5 minutes walk from the Beatles Story.
