In early 2017 James Lavelle will take over Lazarides Rathbone with ‘Daydreaming with Unkle Presents…The Road… Soho’: a unique and interactive exploration of his British music collective Unkle. The show will explore music, art and street culture from a host of talented artists and collaborators, including Futura, 3D from Massive Attack, Doug Foster, Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones and Dexter Navy.
In anticipation of Unkle’s forthcoming album The Road, this immersive show celebrates 25 years of UNKLE by going back to its roots in Soho, London’s hub of counter culture. The show will include old and new paintings, installations and special edition prints from a variety of artists and collaborators, as well as present a series of events including talks and film screenings.
‘Daydreaming with Unkle Presents…The Road: Soho’ goes back to where it all began; Steve Lazarides, founder of Lazarides Gallery, was the first photographer to work with James Lavelle on Unkle and Mo’Wax, while Mo’Wax’s record label offices were situated on nearby Mortimer Street.
There will be new music releases from forthcoming Unkle album The Road, Unkle re-issues and a pop-up store featuring rare counter cultural artefacts from Hysteric Glamour, Neighborhood, Undercover, as well as Casey (Kanye West’s designer), as well as vintage collectible archival pieces from Nike, Converse and Medicom Toys.
The exhibition also features the premiere of a new Virtual Reality installation captured from ‘Daydreaming With…Stanley Kubrick’, and includes a unique opportunity to ‘step inside’ Doug Foster’s mesmerising ‘Beyond the Infinite’ installation to experience art at it’s most immersive.
James Lavelle says: “Unkle has always been a multi-sensory creative project, ranging from genre-defining music to cutting-edge visual art. It therefore feels incredibly fitting to celebrate Unkle’s past, present and future in Soho, where it all began, with an immersive show at the much-loved Lazarides gallery. The exhibition is a collaboration between a number of very talented artists, presenting everything from paintings, videos, artefacts and film screenings; this is the definitive Unkle experience. I look forward to welcoming visitors to daydream with us.”
