The exhibition will take place in a pop-up gallery on the boardwalk in Asbury Park, NJ. as part of the All Tomorrow’s Parties (ATP) I’ll be Your Mirror music festival 2011. Each of the 80 works in this show are inspired by punk, rock, jazz, new wave and hip-hop and presented in a 12” record cover format.
“Long before I knew about art galleries or even street art, I was excited about album cover art, if only because it was the visual counterpart to the music on the records I loved. Album covers conjured a euphoric association with the listening experience. Most of my earliest home-made tee shirts were stencils based on punk album covers. ‘Revolutions’ is a celebration of all the great music and accompanying art that has inspired me over the years.” — Shepard Fairey
