PROCESS: The working practices of Barney Bubbles

The busy Paul Gorman, author of the wonderful Reasons To Be Cheerful: The Life and Work of Barney Bubbles, has announced an exhibition dedicated to the life & work of the influential graphic designer. Taking place in London at Chelsea Space from Sept. 14-Oct. 23, here is all of the info you'll need:

For six weeks from September 14 2010, London gallery Chelsea Space is hosting PROCESS, an exhibition focusing on the working practices of the late designer Barney Bubbles.

The show will contain many never-before-seen items drawn from private collections, including student notebooks, design equipment and tools of the trade, working sketches, original artwork, paintings, reference books and photography.

These were the raw material for record sleeves, posters, advertising, branding and marketing campaigns for such performers as Ian Dury, Hawkwind, Elvis Costello, The Damned and Billy Bragg as well as for Conran Design and provisions company Justin de Blank.

PROCESS will include a programme of events celebrating aspects of Bubbles’ work, with contributions from collaborators including musicians, photographers and fellow designers, as well as talks, q&as, performances and commentary on his legacy by contemporary designers and graphics authorities.

PROCESS is curated by Bubbles biographer Paul Gorman, who is launching the second edition of his monograph Reasons To Be Cheerful: The Life & Work Of Barney Bubbles this autumn.

Under director Donald Smith, Chelsea Space has hosted a series of significant shows over the last five years, among them The Rock & Roll Public Library, the installation by Mick Jones of The Clash, B.A.D., Carbon/Silicon and Gorillaz.
