The Frankie Knuckles Foundation has shared a video teaser of the legendary DJ and producer's record collection, which is now housed inside Stony Island Arts Bank in Knuckles' hometown of Chicago.
The foundation was set up to protect Knuckles' legacy and raise money and advocate for a variety of causes that were close to the legendary selector's heart, including music in school, LGBTQ youth homelessness, diabetes research, and more.
“There are people that are transformed by this music,” says Theaster Gates. “I really want to make sure that no only is there is a really great home for these objects but really that this home allows for some of these conversations to grow.”
Check out the teaser of his extensive record collection below.
