Arctic Monkeys, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Coldplay, Sonic Youth, and Blink-182 are just some of the bands and artists who are donating rare vinyl to a new charity exhibition.
Created by Helium London and curated by Pavement Licker, "Pressing Matters" will see musicians donating vinyl for contemporary artists to create unique pieces of artwork out of rare vinyl and test presses. They will be presented at a month-long exhibition and then auctioned off.
The "Pressing Matters" exhibition will be held at 5 Carlos Place in London from May 4-29. From May 24-29, the pieces will be auctioned off on Helium London’s website. All proceeds will go to grassroots U.K. charity Music Support, which gives mental health support to music industry workers.
Helium London founder and CEO Jennifer McCormick spoke of the new event in a statement.
“Navigating a world in recovery can be a daunting, overwhelming experience with fear of being judged leading to many folks protecting their sobriety from common knowledge. Creating this exhibition has been the most wonderful convergence of my personal and work life in order to champion Music Support. It has brought together phenomenal talent without prejudice and forged new creative relationships all united in breaking down barriers surrounding addiction and mental health.”
