An exhibition of classic album art, revisited by contemporary artists.
Creative production agency Shop Around asked forty-five artists to select their favorite album cover, and use it as a canvas for the upcoming exhibition VINYLIZE!. More than fifty record sleeves from artists such as Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Kraftwerk, Jimi Hendrix, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson and Blondie (just to name a few) received a ‘VINYLIZE makeover, making it a completely new piece of art.
The sleeves will be exhibited at Concerto, the largest record store of the Netherlands. The project is supported by Record Store Day. At the end of the exhibition all sleeves will be auctioned. The proceeds will go to ‘The Ocean Clean Up’ a foundation that is dedicated to clean up the garbage in the ocean.
Especially for Record Store Day, Concerto and Shop Around have compiled a book with all the highlights of this exhibition. The proceeds from this book will also go to ‘The Ocean Clean Up’ project.
Participating artists are (a.o):
William Dalebout (USA), Olla Boku (Taiwan), Eric Ezendam (France), Jonathan Ball, Nearly Normal (UK), Luuk Bode, Dumboh, Typex, Loulou (& Tummie), Mals, Wouter Tulp, Dadara, Lamelos (NL) and many, many others (a complete list of all the participating artists will follow shortly).
