Our exhibition is fast approaching and we are delighted to reveal details about what we have in store for 2016!
Every year we invite our creatives we love to contribute artwork for the show. In the past the level and number of people who have accepted our invitation have caused our jaws to drop, air to be punched and had us jumping for joy. Well, you’ll be pleased to know this year was no different…
Sir Anish Kapoor, Sir Paul Smith, Jenny Holzer, George Hardie, Gavin Turk, Cheryl Dunn, Thierry Noir, Marina Willer, Tom Dixon, Nathalie Du Pasquier, Bob & Roberta Smith, Anthony Burrill, Rob Ryan, Jean Jullien, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Juno Calypso, Frank Bowling, Anthony Lister & musician Stuart Murdoch are all on board to contribute!

Live and direct to vinyl
Back by popular demand this year is The Public Records, which gives you the chance to record yourself live and direct to vinyl at the exhibition.
It’s a chance to experiment, play and create your own vinyl masterpiece – be it a musical performance, spoken word or even a personal message.
It takes place over two weekends - 9/10 and 16/17 April - in a purpose built acoustically treated room at Sonos Studio. That means our recordings are going to sound even better this year!
To book your 15 minute slot click here - there are a limited number of spots so don’t delay.
Sleepover with us
We have also announced some additional special events happening during the exhibition.
For a lucky few we’re hosting a sleepover(!) at the exhibition on 19 April soundtracked by Max Richter’s acclaimed 8 hour record, Sleep. While Tom Vek will delve into the significance of sleeve artwork and its future in the digital age with some special guests.
