Goth/Industrial Album Art Show At StudioLab

Records Wanted Skinny Puppy Front 242
Turntabling is now purchasing record collections featuring industrial bands such as Skinny Puppy, Front 242, Ministry, RevCo and more.

An upcoming art show curated by StudioLab and Turntabling.net will feature the images and sounds of dark music by some of the most legendary bands of the genre.

As part of this art show, Turntabling is in search of record collections to purchase that feature gothic, industrial, dark electronica bands and related performers. We wish to purchase record collections to use in the exhibit.

If you have records by Skinny Puppy, Front 242, Ministry, RevCo, Fad Gadget, Frontline Assembly, Sisters of Mercy, The Mission UK, Armageddon Dildos, Coil, Legendary Pink Dots, Muslimgauze, Noise Unit, Shinjuku Thief, Black Tape For A Blue Girl, Download, Puppy Gristle, The Jackofficers, Switchblade Symphony, Big Electric Cat, Christian Death, Nurse With Wound, Current 93, Dead Artist Syndrome, Electric Hellfire Club, My Life With Thrill Kill Kult, and many others, we definitely want to hear from you.

Contact by email: jwallace@turntabling.net. All serious offers considered.

As mentioned above, there is a great reason for this massive hunt for gothic, industrial, and otherwise dark records-Turntabling, in association with the Chicago artist-run StudioLab located in the historic Flatiron Arts Building in Chicago, is preparing an art show featuring album covers and related materials from the classic era of industrial music. Turntabling seeks to buy record collections that prominently feature gothic/industrial albums to increase the amount of items on display at the exhibit.

Unfortunately due to insurance concerns, we cannot accept loans of this material–we can only purchase outright. But if you have vinyl records to sell, or collections of vinyl that also include posters, fan badges, books, etc on the subject, please get in touch. We are considering all serious offers.

Joe Wallace is curating the show and can be contacted via the address above. Again, record collections that include a lot of gothic/industrial albums, posters, buttons, books, fanzines, etc. will be considered for purchase. We are definitely interested in buying in bulk rather than small lots, but will consider any serious offer regardless of size.

The date for the exhibit has yet to be established since we are in the research and collection phase for the materials, but time is of the essence since we’d like to have the material collected and prepared for display soon. Get in touch as quickly as possible to schedule an appointment to view your collection and discuss purchase options.

Size Matters Art Show Feb 26-28 2016 At StudioLab

Size Matters Art Show StudioLab Chicago Art

We all pretend it doesn’t, but size matters. This isn’t about anatomy; it is about space. Who has the room to hang a gigantic painting or photograph? Most of us live in fairly small places and we need small art.

To this end Mapanare.us and StudioLab present “Size Matters” via ConstantlyConsumingCulture.com. The show opens Friday, February 26 and runs until Sunday February 28. An online version of the show runs from Monday, February 29 until March 16, 2016. The opening reception takes place Friday, February 26 from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.

All the art in this show is the size of a legal U.S. postcard. Pieces are rectangular, at least 3-1/2 inches high by 5 inches long and no more than 4-1/4 inches high by 6 inches long. We are making some allowances for pieces that are three dimensional. Art comes from painters, photographers, video and mixed-media artists. Artists come from all over the USA (and one from Mexico). At the bottom of the release are links to artist websites.

Artists are charged no fees and get the total amount of any piece sold in person or online (processing fees for credit cards and shipping are added to the cost).

Artists set to appear (we may add some); Renee McGinnis (Chicago) Gabriel Martinez (Philadelphia), John Airo (Chicago), Samantha Eden Oakey (Miami), Gretchen Hasse (Chicago), Kimberly Fitzgerald (San Diego), James Messersmith (Los Angeles), Elyse Martin (Chicago), Joe Wallace (Chicago), Manzana Oscura (Mexico City) Areli Leon (Chicago).
