RECOMMENDED: Beyond the Goldmine Standard
until Saturday 16 May in RPM Music
Beyond the Goldmine Standard is an evolving exhibition curated by Matthew Hearn for RPM Music. Organised around the programme for Record Store Day 2015, and in association with the current BALTIC39 exhibition, The Curves of the Needles, the project considers a recurring interest in the vinyl record as an inspiration for artists.
Conceived in response to a series of fan-made record sleeves found amidst collections of second-hand records bought by RPM, Beyond the Goldmine Standard raisies questions of the parameters that govern value by inviting over 50 artists to work directly with a series of select second-hand LPs.
The selected artists include NewBridge Studio Members; Neil Armstrong, Oliver Beck, Katy Cole, Jennifer Douglas, Graeme Durant, Philip Frankland, Aaron Guy, Toby Phips Lloyd, Andrew Maughan, Luke McCreadie, Rosie Morris, Theresa Poulton, Kuba Ryniewicz and Craig Puranen Wilson.
Each Monday a new batch of artist reworked records will be released in RPM and there will be a special closing event on Saturday 16 May, 5-7pm during which the LP’s will be for sale.
