ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
COVER LOVER REMIX (CLR) is a juried multi-artist exhibition of “remixed” album covers. This exhibition explores the transition of visual artists from consumers of album art to creators of reimagined album covers. CLR opens at Pelham Art Center on July 21st and will be on view through August 28th. There will be an Opening Reception at Pelham Art Center on July 21 from 6pm-8pm. as well as an opening DJ Dance party on July 23rd from 12-3pm.
Dimensionally, all exhibiting pieces measure 24” x 24,” which maintains the square shape of an album cover, while doubling the cover size for increased visual impact. Participating artists will reinterpret iconic album covers while maintaining a conceptual thread to the original album artwork, which will be visible via QR code. The experience of CLR is an homage to album cover art and vinyl records and will feature a curated selection of exhibition programming, expected to include all-vinyl DJ sets, pop-up record shops during the opening weekend, and other album art and vinyl-centric programming throughout the exhibition run. The vast range of source material crosses musical genres with album artwork often creating an emotional bond with the public. The beauty, drama, creativity, and anticipation lies in how the artist navigates that bond while owning the vision of their remix. As stated by curator Dick Burroughs, “Album art isn’t normally in art-specific environments such as a gallery, and the public’s interaction with the familiar, yet different creates a vibrant energy.”
