In October I announced our newest collaborative artists book, ‘Lost in a Dream’ by Tom Hyatt. Since then we have been working hard to bring this multi-disciplinary art project to life. ‘Lost in a Dream’ explores the temporary nature of music scenes and the transient artists that embody them.
When I invited Tom to make a book with me I had no idea what the project would become! What started life as a book has become a book, an exhibition, a series of nightly gigs and a download compilation album of all the musicians featured in the project. All these things are finally coming together, and I am thrilled to be able to share the details. I would like to invite each and every one of you to join us at The Harrison from June 25th to July 1st for:
• an exhibition of unseen portrait photographs, featuring the stars of London's grassroots music scene. Shot in the basement of the Harrison, the prints will fade to black throughout the week as we get increasingly lost in a dream.
• nightly performances from the artists in the frames, see below for the full running order. The concentration of talent here is absurd, with artists flying in from France and Spain for one-off performances.
• a chance to see and buy copies of unique artist's books, published and created by boutique publishers As Yet Untitled. Also available to order are darkroom prints of the portraits (see the crowdfunder to order yours now).
• to be present at a live musical recording, for release in the summer, to round off this complete capturing of a music scene in London, in 2018.
The line up is one of the best you will ever find in one venue, in one week in London. You don’t want to miss it!
