Salt Lake City, UT 84111
Calling all music lovers to come and join the Utah Film Center on Wednesday, June 14 at 7 pm at The City Library in Downtown Salt Lake for a free film screening of Squaring the Circle (The Story of Hipgnosis).
Presented as part of the Utah Film Center’s Through the Lens Series and in partnership with KUER’s Radiowest, Squaring the Circle (The Story of Hipgnosis) is a documentary that takes you behind the scenes of the duo who created some of the most recognizable album covers in history like Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here.
Hipgnosis went from making covers for their mates (the likes of David Gilmour and Syd Barrett) to establishing themselves as the driving force behind visual identities of some of the most popular artists of the 1970s (think Led Zeppelin and Paul McCartney). Their methods were unconventional, their budgets often unreasonable, but they were fearless visionaries who artfully manipulated photographic images long before computer graphics became ubiquitous.
After the screening will be a Q&A moderated by KUER’s RadioWest host, Doug Fabrizio with producers Trish D. Chetty and Ged Doherty and local artist Jann Haworth, co-creator of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover.
