As part of Youth Music's 10th Birthday, more than 70 of the world's biggest musicians and visual artists have created a new body of artwork that will be exhibited and auctioned to support the charity as part of Phillip’s De Pury’s inaugural Music Sale. Artists from Damien Hirst and Debbie Harry to U2 and Michael Stipe have created their own unique interpretations of photographer Rankin's iconic photographs of musicians. Image and video hosting by TinyPic The photo may be a classic from the archive or the musician may have been invited to take part in a shoot specifically for the project. Many have done the artwork themselves, or nominated a visual artist with whom they have collaborated. Each artist has manipulated the image in a unique, personal way, creating a comment on themselves, their music, their image, the media or anything they choose, creating paintings, collages, sculptures... The one off originals have been returned for preservation and auction at Phillips De Pury on the 14th November, as part of Youth Music Week 2009, and will appear in a limited edition book available at www.youthmusic.org.uk/rankin Image and video hosting by TinyPic The exhibition will be open from 9th-21st November, free admission from 10am-6pm Daily. There will also be two exclusive gigs from Little Boots and The Enemy on 12th and 13th November. The 405 will be checking out the private view on 9th November, which will include performances from Micachu, Josh Weller, Patrick Wolf and Youth Music ambassador, Mica, so stay tuned for that!
