Sound and art converge at London’s 180 Studios this spring with Reverb

An expansive sonic show presenting over 100 artists

Over 100 artists will create a monumental sound experience inside the cavernous spaces of  London’s 180 The Strand this spring for an immersive new experience, Reverb.

Presented by The Vinyl Factory at 180 Studios, the expansive multimedia exhibition explores the intersection of sound and art, and is the largest show of its kind, enlisting over 100 artists and musicians from across visual arts, music, television, film and live performance.

At the heart of the exhibition will be five newly commissioned, site-specific AV installations by Theaster Gates, Es Devlin, Julianknxx, and Caterina Barbieri. New York ‘speaker sculptor’ Devon Turnbull is installing his Hi-Fi Listening Room Dream No.1, a meditative listening room within the exhibition, curated with a programme of unheard music, including exclusive test pressings and studio outtakes.

Reverb will also see the UK premieres artworks by Kahlil Joseph, Stan Douglas, Virgil Abloh and Cecilia Bengolea, plus installations by Jeremy Deller, William Kentridge, Jenn Nkiru, Hito Steyerl, Carsten Nicolai and Gabriel Moses.

As if that wasn’t enough, legendary Hacienda designer Ben Kelly is designing a record room where 100 vinyl records created by artists and released by The Vinyl Factory will be on display. This includes releases by Nan Goldin, Arthur Jafa, Marina Abramovic, Grace Jones, Yussef Dayes, Es Devlin, Fred Again, Thom Yorke, Ragnar Kjartansson, Massive Attack, Pet Shop Boys, Maurizio Cattelan, Daft Punk, The xx, Rachel Rose, Kojey Radical, Taryn Simon and many, many more.

During the show, a public program of live musical performances will take place, which The Vinyl Factory will press as limited-edition vinyl records.

Reverb opens at 180 The Strand, London, WC2R 1EA on 23 May – 28 September 2024. Sign up to hear when tickets are available.
