HVW8 Reggae

If you’re into reggae vinyl at all, you’ll love the art opening at LA’s HVW8 gallery this Friday. They’ve collaborated with One Love Books to bring In Fine Style: The Dancehall Art of Wilfred Limonious, the first West Coast solo exhibition of work by iconic and prolific Jamaican illustrator Wilfred Limonious (1949–99). At the same time, they’re opening Covers: Retracing Reggae Record Sleeves in London, which relates to another upcoming title from One Love Books. After researching various reggae LPs and twelve-inches from his record collection, photographer Alex Bartsch has shot fifty sleeves in their original London locations, holding them up at arm’s-length so that they blend in with their surroundings, decades later.
