One of their current exhibitions, ‘Fantasy 12’, offers a fantastical trip into iconic album artwork…
Hen’s Teeth Prints, This Greedy Pig & Choice Cuts presents ‘Fantasy 12’. They reached out to artists, designers and record labels behind some of their favourite album covers and asked them, “If you could release a record from any iconic artist (past or present), what the cover would look like?”
As this was the artists own fantasy, the only restriction that they had was keeping their responses in the square dimensions of a record sleeve. The work will be exhibited in The Copper House Gallery and will launch on October 13th. The opening night will ring in a week of live music, DJs and talks.
The roster of designers have created some of the most iconic covers of our time for artists and record labels including Kendrick Lamar, Prince, DJ Shadow, Flying Lotus, Lobster Theremin, Mochilla, Luaka Bop Records, William Onyeabor, Fela Kuti, Run The Jewels, DFA Records, All City Records, Hyperdub, Talk Talk, Apex Twin, Warp Records, Anderson Paak, Jamiroquai and Soundway Records.
