Candy Karaoke: Over 70 of Ireland’s leading creatives create their own 1-off cover versions of favourite album covers

Project Poster

In a time where digital music sales have outstripped physical formats like cd or vinyl, thereby shifting the focus from browsing cover art in your local record shop to high budget videos and
clever marketing, CandyCollective wanted to celebrate the ever declining craft of sleeve art.

‘CandyKaraoke’ sees a collaboration for the first time with Monster Truck Gallery on Francis Street and RHA to invite over 70 of Ireland’s leading designers, artists, photographers, illustrators, musicians and original creative minds to reimagine their favourite album covers. All artworks produced will be original 1-off 12” square works which will be sold for only 300 euro each.

The show will launch to everyone on Thursday 19th from 7pm and will continue in Monster Truck from Thursday 19th June to Monday 1st July 2008.
