Bid on one of 15
on 3 Dec
On 3 December, the seventh and final Secret 7” will culminate in Planar 1/1, an auction of 15 customised Rega Planar 1 turntables by world-famous artists including Sir Paul Smith, Morag Myerscough, Haroon Mirza, Rana Begum, Gregor Hildebrandt and Alison Goldfrapp. Using a Rega Planar 1 as a canvas, each artist has pushed the boundaries of the open brief, repurposing and reconditioning the turntable into a novel piece of art.
The money raised from the sales will further boost this year's grand total for Help Refugees.
Secret 7” takes 7 tracks from 7 of the best-known musicians around and presses each one 100 times to 7” vinyl. We then openly invite you to create artwork for the 7 tracks.
The result is 700 unique records which are exhibited in London before being auctioned. However, buyers don’t know who created the artwork or even which song it’s for, until they have parted with their cash.
In 2020 we sold all 700 records in the show for £134,000!
Amongst the 700 unique records in our gallery are artworks from Lubaina Himid, Anish Kapoor, Tacita Dean, Mark Wallinger, Shona Heath, The Connor Brothers, Helen Beard, Jeremy Deller, Lotte Andersen, Stanley Donwood, Jadé Fadojutimi, Ragnar Kjartansson, Maya Hayuk, Gavin Turk, Unskilled Worker, Michel Gondry and many more.
