taf- the art foundation |

metamatic:taf presents the exhibition centimetersxinches which opens on Monday 26 November and will run until 1 December.

An exploration of vinyl artworks, a composition of rare vinyl covers and artistic vinyl covers by collectors – music professional and Greek visual artists. Vinyl record covers constitute a distinctive field of artistic and communicative interest. An image which can sometimes be of unquestionable artistic value functions as cover for a mass – produced object addressed to the general public. Aiming in the course of time to act as communication material and being consistently affected by the current sociopolitical and cultural conditions, the cover itself can in certain cases influence the mass culture of its time.

The selection of vinyl record covers will be made by collectors, djs of metamatic:taf as well as Greek visual artists.

Curated by: metamatic:taf and bijoux de kant
