Peter Blake in Magnificent Obsessions: The Artist as Collector

Barbican, London

Works by Peter Blake will be exhibited in this first major exhibition in the UK to present the fascinating personal collections of post-war and contemporary artists. Ranging from mass-produced memorabilia and popular collectibles to one-of-a-kind curiosities, rarefied artefacts, and specimens, these collections provide insight into the inspirations, influences, motives and obsessions of artists.
