Here we go then, back and through the whole thing, out on the other side, survived the festive break, the flood, the this and the that, ready for more art, more music, more of it all. We’ll start with a quick cut and paste, a bag load of info, some links, words and images, a simple passing on of some information rather then a wordy opiniom or review or some fracture thuoght, a quick parish notice while we get om with mops and chasing plumbers and saving paintings and boxes of CDs and paint and papers and… James Lavelle, he of Unkle and such, has what looks like it might well be a rather stimulating show at Lazaredes Gallery over in Soho, Central London, this coming January….
“Inspired by the desire to marry music and the visual arts, Daydreaming With… is an art exhibition series, which aims to create a unique and multi-sensory experience, unprecedented by museum exhibitions or music festivals”.
“Mo’Wax and UNKLE founder, artist and DJ assumes the role of curator for each Daydreaming with… project. For the inaugural exhibition in 2010, Lavelle showcased original, previously unheard music, composed specifically for the exhibition, alongside artwork by a selection of around 30 artists, from the established to the up-and-coming. Each artist was assigned a track to respond to, creating a unique experience for the viewer, through using his or her own visual language. The artists involved represent a wide range of disciplines, including film, music, photography, fashion, performance, painting and sculpture. These experiences are combined under one roof to create the ultimate multi-sensory environment. Daydreaming with… is an opportunity for members of both the music and visual arts communities of all ages to engage with one another, and to experience these media in a new and exciting way”.
