Theaster Gates, Devon Turnbull, Caterina Barbieri, Jeremy Deller, Carsten Nicolai, Es Devlin and Virgil Abloh all feature as part of REVERB, a major multimedia exhibition exploring the intersection of art and sound curated by The Vinyl Factory, now open at 180 Studios until 28 September, 2024. Tickets are on sale now.

The largest show of its kind, REVERB brings together over 100 artists and musicians working across visual arts, music, film and live performance. The exhibition showcases the breadth of The Vinyl Factory’s commissions and collaborations over the past 20 years, including site-specific audio-visual installations and sonic experiences from artists including Theaster Gates, Es Devlin and Julianknxx.

Hi-Fi Listening Room Dream No.1, created by and programmed with New York artist Devon Turnbull, creates a meditative space within the exhibition to listen to vinyl with an evolving programme of unheard music, including exclusive test pressings and studio outtakes.

A wide-ranging programme of live performances and talks will also take place alongside the exhibition. A new work by Theaster Gates, Amplified, will exist as a sonic installation during the day and transform into a space that hosts live performances by night, with shows by established and emerging musicians recorded and pressed direct-to-disc on The Vinyl Factory Lathe.
