Vinyl test pressings used as art canvases in new London fundraising exhibition, Pressing Matters

Vinyl test pressings are being used as art canvases in a new London fundraising exhibition.

Organised by MATCHESFASHION in collaboration with Helium London, and curated and created by cult art zine Pavement Licker, Pressing Matters doubles as an exhibition and charity fundraising auction.

Held at 5 Carlos Place until May 29th, it features one-off pieces by artists such as Cold War Steve, Joy Yamusangie, Larry Achiampong, Ralph Steadman and David Shrigley, working with rare test pressings and vinyl donated by the likes of The Prodigy, Underworld, Fatboy Slim, LCD Soundsystem and Bicep.

All money raised from the auction - which launched on May 20th - will go to Music Support, the grassroots charity offering help and support for those in or employed by the UK music industry affected by mental ill-health and/or addiction.
