The idea behind the forthcoming Fantasy 12 exhibition was fairly simple: a bunch of artists, designers and record labels were asked “if you could release a record from any iconic artist (past or present), what would the cover look like?” The only restriction was to ensure the finished work would fit within the square dimensions of a record sleeve.

A bunch of artists are already onboard including 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) and many more.

The Fantasty 12 exhibition, put together by This Greedy Pig, Choice Cuts and Hens Teeth Prints, will open in Dublin’s Copper House Gallery on October 13 which will kick off a week of live music, DJs, talks, screenings and record fairs.
