NOW Gallery will be hosting the seventh and final Secret 7” exhibition, with leading names from the worlds of music and art collaborating to produce 700 one-of-a-kind 7” singles to benefit Help Refugees, hosted in partnership with Columbia Records and Camden Town Brewery.
Taking place between 14th October – 1st November at NOW Gallery on Greenwich Peninsula the show will showcase the works of Sir Anish Kapoor, Lubaina Himid, The Connor Brothers and conceptual visual artist Tacita Dean.
Raising money for Help Refugees, the designers have created one of a kind artwork for their choice of his year’s iconic seven tracks: Aretha Franklin ‘One Step Ahead’, Bob Dylan ‘Blind Willie McTell’, Foo Fighters ‘This Is A Call’, The Internet ‘Come Over’, Koffee ‘Toast’, Miles Davis ‘Miles Runs The Voodoo Down’, and Vampire Weekend ‘Harmony Hall’. The records are created by pressing the tracks onto 7” vinyl, with each track being limited to just 100 copies, creating one-of-a-kind collectables that appeal to hardcore fans, record collectors and art connoisseurs alike.
The 700 records will be exhibited at NOW Gallery before they are made available to buy. The identities of their creators remain a secret until the record is in their new owner’s hands. Throughout its history, Secret 7” has attracted a wide variety of influential contributors. Participating musicians have included The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Lorde and Public Enemy, while artwork has been provided by the likes of Sir Peter Blake, Yoko Ono, Sir Paul Smith, and Jake and Dinos Chapman.
