Experience Interstellar Transmissions, a series of paintings/digital prints/photographs transmitted from deep space by Abdul Qadim Haqq, who has created record cover artwork for Detroit Techno labels Underground Resistance and Red Planet; and by Gustavo Alberto Garcia Vaca, who has created record cover artwork for Metroplex, Los Hermanos and Axis Records. Abdul and Gustavo work in the ancient tradition of fusing artwork with music. In recent times, this fusion has been deepened by artists Tadanori Yokoo (who created record covers for Miles Davis, Santana, Pharoah Sanders), Shusei Nagaoka (who created record covers for Earth Wind & Fire) and Pedro Bell (who created record covers for Funkadelic). And now Abdul and Gustavo create artwork inspired, conceptualized and created in collaboration with the rhythms of Techno and electronic music.

Book: a limited-edition catalogue book will be available for sale at the exhibition
