Bregenz, Künstlerhaus, Englische Kunst der Gegenwart, July-August 1977.
The present work is the artwork for a poster commissioned for the 207th Royal Academy summer exhibition in 1975. The composition includes several of Blake's own works, for example 'Liberty in a Kimono' and a section from 'Got a Girl' - both of which were included in the 1983 Tate Gallery exhibition.
As her triptych, Surprise Ending, is offered to benefit the charity Hopeland, the artist explains how her work engages with a digitally overloaded world
