I never went to the Peter Saville Exhibition. Something I have always regretted, although I imagine I was (or am now) already familiar with most of the stuff on display. Well here's another chance to see (something by) Saville at the same exhibition space.

The Design Museum is set to host a new electronic music exhibition called Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers

"Travel to dance floors from Detroit to Chicago, Paris, Berlin and the UK’s thriving scene; featuring over 400 objects and the likes of Detroit techno legend Jeff Mills, Haçienda designer Ben Kelly and the extreme visual world created by Weirdcore for Aphex Twin’s ‘Collapse’. Discover early pioneers like Daphne Oram and the seminal BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Indulge your senses with large scale images of rave culture by Andreas Gursky, iconic DJ masks and fashion, a genre-spanning soundtrack by French DJ and producer Laurent Garnier, graphics from Peter Saville CBE and history-making labels and club nights.

However, I suspect it might actually be the immersive 3D stuff from Kraftwerk and The Chems that's the most interesting:

"Celebrate 50 years of legendary group Kraftwerk with a half-hour long 3D show. Step into the visual world of The Chemical Brothers for one of their legendary live shows, as visuals and lights interact to create a new three-dimensional experience by Smith & Lyall – featuring Grammy Award-winning track 'Got to Keep On'."

1 April to 26 July. London.

I did go to the Peter Saville Exhibition at The Design Museum waaaay back in summer 2003.God it seems a lifetime ago now.I think at the time it felt like the first time there'd been a Saville or Factory or New Order exhibition and so made the effort to go.Nowadays it seems there's a new one every month.Can't remember much about it really except for Soundtrack on repeat as i walked round looking at the Saville sleeves inside glass boxes.It was lovely to experience though and a great day out down to London on a summer's day.Vaguely recall there was a miniature model of the picture on the Thieves Like Us sleeve.Or did i dream that? I'd always thought the Thieves sleeve was a painting by Saville but i'm sure there was a model of what is pictured on the sleeve.Like a model was made and then photographed and later tweaked to make it look like a painting. Maybe.
