Covers: Retracing Reggae Record Sleeves in London
Until Monday 23 April
In a nutshell
Touring photographic exhibition celebrating the launch of Alex Bartsch’s Covers book. Exhibition curated by Al ‘Fingers’ Newman
The launch of Alex Bartsch’s new book, Covers: Retracing Reggae Record Sleeves in London, alongside an exhibition of photographs from the book, curated by Al ‘Fingers’ Newman. An in-depth analysis into the subject, the photographs feature excerpts from interviews with those involved in the making of the covers, including recording artists, record company staff, and the original photographers and their peers, providing rich cultural and historical context to the album sleeves. Visually stunning and contextually fascinating, this work will appeal to those interested in reggae, vintage album cover art and the historical documentation of London and other parts of the UK, as well as the broader evolution of popular culture in Britain.
Join us for the exhibition opening and book launch on Wed 4 April at 6pm. Refreshments will be provided.
