Photo : our editor gets sneak preview of exhibition
As part of Manchester International Festival a major celebration of the iconic Joy Division and New Order artwork is to open. LTW has had a sneak preview of the exhibition collated by Jon Savage and Matthew Hicks which is in Manchester Art Gallery.
slong with some of the classic Joy Division photos blown up to huge size, there are various pieces of artwork and pieces that make for a fascinating trawl through the back pages of this most iconic of bands.
Our favourite item was Rob Gretton’s notebook with a carefully biro’ d list of things to do with a paragraph laying out how the band ethic of art over money – a crucial glimpse into the managers mindset.
