NEWS: TMBFY to present A Disappearing Exhibition: Vinyl
Our friends over at TMBFY are putting up a pretty cool event and we thought you might be interested in it!
This Must Be For You team up with London In Stereo and Transgressive Records to present their second in a series of Disappearing Exhibitions at A-Side B-Side gallery in Hackney from Tuesday 14 till Saturday 18 November.
A variety of musicians, tattoo artists, illustrators & photographers will produce one-off record sleeves for releases from Transgressive’s brilliant roster. These will be on exhibit at A-side B-side gallery from 15th-18th Nov, and on the final night attendees are invited to take the artwork and it’s accompanying vinyl home for free.
“The team has chosen some great artists, and we’ve had a nice time looking through our catalogue and deciding on a healthy mix of classics and lost gems to have them create unique artwork for.” – Mike Harounoff (Transgressive)
“A Disappearing Exhibition is all about combining the things we love, art, music, friends and it’s just so cool that at the end of the show people get to go home with part of the show.” – Jess Partridge (London In Stereo)
“It has been a dream to work on an event that not only promotes human kindness, but also the idea that art should be accessible for everyone.” – Tash Cutts (TMBFY)
Among the contributing artists are Hugh Schulte of Gengahr, Frank Wright of Blaenavon, Ed Nash from Toothless, Girl Ray‘s Iris McConnel and Sophie Moss, Graphic artist Alice Corner, illustrator Beatrice Bloomfield, tattooist Elliot Lane and Sonny Malhotra.
The purpose is not only to spread human kindness, but also encourage the idea that art should be accessible to all. (And don’t worry – for those who do not get an original piece, there will also be plenty of one-off pin badges and prints available for free).
Alongside the exhibition will be 2 gigs at Paper Dress Vintage (next door to the gallery) with London In Stereo presenting a secret headliner on Tuesday 14 November coinciding with an exhibition private view and a free entry show on Saturday 18 November.
“I often do my paintings as gifts for people I like (but most of the time I end up hanging onto them), so I love the idea of somebody I don’t know getting this one as a gift.” – Frank Wright
“After seeing the first Disappearing Exhibition last year I knew I wanted to get involved in the next one. I’m a huge believer that art is for everybody – not just the elite – and as such only use readily available, cheap materials.” – Alice Corner
“I love the idea of art being both accessible and transient.” – Sonny Malhotra
