The One LP Project by William Ellis at the Archive of Contemporary Music

The ARChive of Contemporary Music is pleased to present its first gallery exhibition by British photographer William Ellis. The exhibition offers 50 portraits of musicians holding one of their favorite albums, and will take place Friday Sept 19 – Friday Oct 3.

Each portrait is accompanied by a short interview that explores the album’s meaning and value for the subject, often offering a profound insight into influences and deep connections with the music of other artists. In some instances the record chosen sets the course of the musician’s life. Unique to this exhibit will be QR codes linking selected portraits to these interviews and audio.

As you frolic over the Labor Day Holiday please mark you calendars, the free gallery exhibition open to the general public Friday Sept 19 – Friday Oct 3. Daily 11am – 5pm. Closed Sundays. ARC members and invited guests (do contact us if you’d like to attend) can attend the opening night viewing and party Thursday evening, Sept 18, from 5 – 9pm.

Special event: At the opening night party Mr. Ellis will take portraits of six lucky guests holding their favorite LP that they can choose from the ARChive’s collection. These portraits will be $100, the fee generously donated by Mr. Ellis to benefit the ARChive. You can reserve your portrait, first come, first served, by sending us an e-mail or giving us a call.
