Description

180 Studios presents The Vinyl Factory — Reverb, a multimedia exhibition exploring the intersection of art and sound. In the largest show of its kind, The Vinyl Factory brings together over 100 artists and musicians – working across mediums including visual arts, music, film and live performance.

Showcasing The Vinyl Factory’s collaborations with artists and musicians from the past 20 years as well as many new works, the exhibition features site-specific audio-visual installations and sonic experiences commissioned by The Vinyl Factory, from artists including Theaster Gates, Es Devlin, Julianknxx, Kahlil Joseph, Caterina Barbieri, Stan Douglas, Virgil Abloh, Cecilia Bengolea, Jeremy Deller, William Kentridge, Jenn Nkiru, Hito Steyerl, Carsten Nicolai and Gabriel Moses.

Hi-Fi Listening Room Dream No.1, created by and programmed with New York artist Devon Turnbull, provides a meditative space within the exhibition to listen to vinyl with an evolving programme of unheard music, including exclusive test pressings and studio outtakes.

A wide-ranging programme of live performances and talks will also sit alongside the exhibition. A new work by Theaster Gates, Amplified, exists as a sonic installation during the day and transforms into a space that hosts live performances, with shows by established and emerging musicians recorded and pressed direct-to-disc on The Vinyl Factory Lathe.

100 vinyl records created by artists and released by The Vinyl Factory and pressed at the iconic Vinyl Factory Pressing Plant between 2009-2024 are also on display in a new installation called 100 Records, designed by Ben Kelly. These include VF releases by Marina Abramovic, Arthur Jafa, Nan Goldin, Grace Jones, Pipilotti Rist, William Kentridge, Mica Levi, Yussef Dayes, Es Devlin, Fred Again, Thom Yorke, Roxy Music, Shabaka Hutchings, Massive Attack, Pet Shop Boys, Daft Punk, The xx, Rachel Rose, Kojey Radical and many more.

For the past 20 years The Vinyl Factory has been at the forefront of fostering pioneering collaborations between artists and musicians, embracing new ideas and exploring new ways of merging art and sound.
