The synthesis of music and art has a long history from pop to post modern, with particular songs becoming integral to the making of individual pieces of work. Lyrics have a powerful artistic poignancy and with this in mind Transition Gallery have asked over sixty contemporary artists to make a new work inspired by a favourite lyric for Awopbopaloobop.
Unsurprisingly Awopbopaloobop features a diverse array of lyrics from the political rallying cry of the Internationale to the plaintive gospel of The Sweet Inspirations via The Ting Tings, Joy Division, The Smiths, Sibylle Baier, Pavement, PJ Harvey, The Jam and many more. Using a variety of media Awopbopaloobop transforms this cacophony of passionately felt lyrical paeans into visual manifestations of aural desire.
The launch of the rock 'n' roll issue of Garageland Magazine which features Jarvis Cocker, Thurston Moore, MIA, Kylie Minogue, Bernard Rhodes, Peter Liversidge, Slade in Flames, the top ten art bands and much more takes place on Sunday 30 November 4-6pm.
