Peter Saville

About

Described as a ‘social sculptor’ by curator Hans Ulrich Obrist, Peter Saville’s interventions in mass culture have had a unique influence on our visual environment. As co-founder of the legendary independent label Factory Records, Saville introduced a progressive visual language through an inspirational series of works that included the iconic covers for Joy Division and New Order. 

Going on to work extensively in fashion and the cultural sector, he is credited with significantly affecting the interplay between art and design. His achievements were celebrated in The Peter Saville Show at the Design Museum in London in 2003, the exhibition then traveled to Tokyo and Manchester. His first major show in a contemporary art museum was at the Migros Museum in Zurich in 2005. He is represented by Galerie Neu in Berlin and Paul Stolper Gallery  in London.

He is a regular broadcaster and lectures internationally. Saville is now playing a leading strategic role in the economic regeneration and cultural renaissance of his home city of Manchester as consultant creative director to Manchester City Council. As well as advising the city on perception and communication, he is creative consultant to the critically acclaimed Manchester International Festival.
