Planar 1/1 – Secret 7″ Auction
4th Nov – 12th Nov 2020, Now Gallery
Secret 7” is an initiative that raises money for Help Refugees. The charity provides food & safe long-term housing, as well as search & rescue boats for those seeking refuge in Europe.
The idea behind the exhibition is that 700 artists are asked to create unique artwork for the covers of 7 different 7” singles. This year the single features music by Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, & Miles Davis amongst others.
The list of artistic contributors includes such luminaries as Anish Kapoor, The Connor Brothers Jeremy Deller, Lotte Andersen, Stanley Donwood, Gavin Turk, & Michel Gondry, plus many more.
Rega 1 / 1 Auction
To coincide with the Secret 7” exhibition, some world-renowned designers, artists & musicians have been let loose on some Rega P1 turntables. Their creations will be auctioned off on November 12th 2020 – with all proceeds going to Help Refugees.
The turntables will be displayed at London’s Now Gallery, from Weds. 4th November through Thursday 12th November 2020. Look out for unique pieces by Alison Goldfrapp, Charlie Oscar Patterson, Sir Paul Smith & more. You can bid on them here.
Soundstage vs SPIN Design
This isn’t the first time artists have customised a Rega turntable. Back In 2015, we collaborated with SPIN Design for the Future Artefacts exhibition in Shoreditch to create 3 unique RP1 turntables. Look out for some more one-off Soundstage commissioned pieces of hi-fi in 2021!
