Fantasy 12 is a forthcoming exhibition where a bunch of artists, designers and record labels answer the question “if you could release a record from any iconic artist (past or present), what would the cover look like?”.

Those taking the challenge to design an iconic sleeve include Vlad Sepetov (best known for his work with Kendrick Lamar), Stephen Serrato (Flying Lotus’ “You’re Dead”), Cecilia Martinez AKA Teti (creative and art director at Lobster Theremin Records), Nick Gazin (Vice’s art editor and illustrator and who has worked on the Run The Jewels project), Dewey Saunders (Anderson .Paak etc), Paul Diddy (Luaka Bop label art director) and many more. The exhibition of their work will run at Dublin’s Copper House Gallery from October 13 and there will also be live music, DJs, talks, screenings, and record fairs as part of the buzz.

As part of the exhibition, Banter will host a discussion at The Sugar Club on Saturday October 15 with Vlad Sepetov, Nick Gazin and Paul Diddy talking about the ins and outs of designing for music. Tickets for the event are now available here.
