We're getting lots of enquiries about the next instalment of Secret 7". The plan, and it isn't rock solid just yet, will be to launch the next campaign in October 2019 with the exhibition following in the first half of 2020. It'll be our seventh show and as big fans of the number we're taking the time to make sure it's a special year!

We’re proud to present Planar 1/1, the finale to our fundraising for Mind this year.
Building on the success of the turntables we made with Thierry Noir in 2016, this year we invited ten artists to take a Rega Planar 1 turntable and create something unique with it to aid our cause.
The incredible artists who have so kindly created and donated work include; Gavin Turk, Jeremy Deller, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Es Devlin, Stuart Semple, James Joyce, Jean Jullien, Pete Fowler, Hsiao-Chi Tsai & Kimiya Yoshikawa and Francis Richardson.
Turner prize winning artist Jeremy Deller has applied Neolithic arrowheads to his Planar 1, whilst Gavin Turk has re-envisioned his turntable as a heritage plaque referencing ‘Cave’, one of his most iconic pieces. Mind ambassador Stuart Semple's turntable is a nod to Joy Division, whilst Jean Jullien has used the turntable’s movement to brilliantly bring his work to life.
