Secret 7”, now in its fifth year, has announced the sleeve designers for its 2016 vinyl exhibition. Following its previous formats, the project features hundreds of bespoke, one-of-kind record sleeves for seven chosen tracks. Among the many contributors are Sir Paul Smith, Jean Jullien, Pentagram partner Marina Willer, George Hardie, Jenny Holzer, Anish Kapoor, Juno Calypso and Here 2016 speaker Bob & Roberta Smith.
The concept behind Secret 7" is simple: after seven tracks from top musicians are selected, 100 copies of each are pressed and sleeve artwork is anonymously created for all 700 singles by some of the most established names in the art and design world.
A full list of this year’s contributors can be seen on the Secret 7” website.
All 700 sleeves will be exhibited at Secret 7"’s new home in Shoreditch at Sonos Studio, from 8 April – 1 May.
