The artwork of our ten year anniversary tour will be exhibited in Tokyo, Amsterdam and London in the coming weeks.
As you've probably heard by now, we're currently in the midst of celebrating our ten year anniversary with a series of parties across the globe, each with a mystery headliner, "the X." In fact, with the remaining dates coming up this month in Tokyo at eleven (9th), Berlin at Panorama Bar (14th) and Amsterdam at Trouw (22nd), it's fair to say that tour has entered into its final throes.
As part of the overall ten year anniversary concept, we enlisted ten different designers to create artwork for each of the parties. The posters have been made available to purchase in limited runs of 75 via RA, each hand silk-screened by K2 in London. Aside from representing some of our favourites in the field, the designers were chosen based on their considerable contributions and collaborations within electronic music. We could be here for the best part of a day trying to sum-up their credentials (our Under the Covers series has featured in-depth discussions with a selection of the designers), but the list of those involved in project includes Trevor Jackson, Simon Cook, Stefan Marx, Zeke Clough, Erosie, Albert Bertolin, Will Bankhead, Michael Cina, The Designers Republic and Laurent Fetis.
For the first of three exhibitions, M in Tokyo will display the entire collection as of this Friday 7th October, running through until Saturday 15th October. Opening times are 18:00 - 02:00, Sunday to Thursday; 18:00 - 04:00 on Friday and Saturday. Entrance is free.
We'll then shift the attention to ADE the following week, displaying the works throughout the event at the conference's central base, Felix Meritis, which those with ADE registration can access for free.
Finally, beginning Thursday 27th October, Kemistry in Shoreditch, London will play host. If you're in town on the opening evening, pop down and join us for a free beer (thanks Asahi) at the "private viewing" from 6pm (entrance is also free).
