Remix: The Art of Music
Gabba Gallery x Adopt the Arts
Opening August 4th 7-11pm
Gabba Gallery and Adopt the Arts invite you to experience Remix: The Art of Music. This special exhibition features artwork by 70+ local and international visual artists who used music as their inspiration. Curated by Jason Ostro and Elena Jacobson, the show will be on view at Gabba Gallery August 4 – 25, 2018. A portion of all sales will benefit Adopt the Arts which helps fund arts programs in elementary schools.
One section of Remix focuses on artworks designed to look like album covers. As was the case with Gabba’s past exhibitions Cratedigger (2016) and Cratedigger vol. 2 (2017) all these pieces will be 12 inches square, the same size as classic record sleeve. Each artist created an album cover for a different band, some real and some imagined. Viewing them is like flipping through a wild and fantastic crate of records.
For the rest of Remix, artists were given no restrictions at all. Anything related to any kind of music was welcomed. The results are dazzlingly diverse and inspiring.
