Blog / Record inspiration


By Wendy

Almost daily, we hear how well New Englanders have received our exhibition, “The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl,” now on view at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston.
We also occasionally hear from artists who continue to find inspiration in that show. Brazil-based artist Felipe Barbosa created 36 prints inspired by flea market album covers, part of “The Record” exhibition. He wrote to us about a new work, which he says is a podium made from Top 10 vinyl records of the 1980s.
“The show really gave me new ideas,” he wrote, by email.
Felipe’s work, “The Record,” pictured above, is now on view in the exhibition “Leitura Dinâmica” at  Cosmocopa Arte Contemporânea in Brazil.
Read about Dario Robleto, another artist whose work is part of “The Record,” whose recent solo show in New York was inspired by the exhibition.
