A celebration of the art behind the music industry - Exhibition, Panel Discussion & Auction.
Lend your ears to music, open your eyes to painting, and... stop thinking. Just ask yourself whether the work has enabled you to 'walk about' into a hitherto unknown world. If the answer is yesâ€¦what more do you want?â€ť - Wassily Kandinsky
Original album artwork, music photography and other visual arts will be brought together in this celebration of the art behind the music industry.
Inspired by Wassily Kandinskyâ€™s passion for the crossover of music and art, this show will be a moment to celebrate the importance and beauty of the visual arts in the music industry.
Musicians and artists have collaborated throughout history: James Abbott McNeill Whistler and Claude Debussy, Marc Chagall and the Ballet Russes, Salvador Dali and Alice Cooper, Jay-Z and Marina AbramoviÄ‡, and countless album artwork collaborations. The visual arts have consistently played a role in promoting and contextualising music performance.
This show will shine a light on the collaborations of today. It will be a moment to put the art of the music industry at the front of the stage. It will be a moment to celebrate the beauty and importance of that key creative partner. It will be a moment to lend your ears to music and open your eyes to the visual arts.
