Inspired by the desire to marry music and visual art, DAYDREAMING…WITH JAMES LAVELLE is a unique and visceral new exhibition experience, bringing together some of the most high profile and acclaimed creative names working in music, art, film, fashion and design. Each artist will create a brand new artwork inspired by new music composed for the project by UNKLE. Inspired by a lifetime of work and musical collaborations, world-renowned Producer, Label owner, Music Maker and DJ James Lavelle (UNKLE) takes the role of the Curator for this unprecedented pop-up exhibition at HAUNCH OF VENISON gallery which takes place in Mayfair, London, over the summer bank holiday weekend, 27 – 30 August 2010.
Each track has been assigned to a major contemporary creative, who will in turn respond to the track using his or her own visual language to create a unique experience for the viewer. Working with artists representing a wide range of disciplines, these experiences will be combined under one roof to create the ultimate multi-sensory environment. Highlights of the brand new work made for this exhibition include an installation, screen prints and photographs by Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones; new work by Futura; an installation by Turner Prize nominee Nathan Coley; and a new piece from Jonas Burgert which will all be installed at Haunch of Venison exclusively for the Daydreaming weekend.
