  • Tate Britain, London, Exhibition

    The painting ‘The Absinthe Drinker’ by Edgar Degas was displayed at the Tate Britain, a 115-year-old institution that houses the UK’s national collection of British and International Modern and Contemporary Art. When Degas initially exhibited the painting it caused a public outrage. The task was to design a document which would contain all the reviews of the painting by various art critics.

    A newspaper was an appropriate format for the reviews. Its style was to be modled upon that of the newspapers of Degas’s era.
