    Album Art Galerie's logo

    Album Art Galerie (pronounced gah·luh·ree) is a project directed and curated by Stephen Gombakomba, looking at the importance of album artwork in a musical context. The aim for this is to amplify the role album art plays and appreciating how the artwork can be viewed as it’s own artistic entity while appropriating workflows of a physical gallery.

    As a curator whose workflow has been limited due to COVID-19 restrictions, I wanted to appropriate elements of a physical gallery to the digital space. With the social media usage increase over the lockdown period through recreational uses such as challenges, motivational quotes and throwback posts I also saw the power social media had through the support for civil and human rights activist groups.

    Album artwork is where my love for music and design intersect and as I am involved in both music and graphic design communities I feel I can use this to further not only mine but my peers’ knowledge too.

    The logo uses Redaction, a typefaces inspired by an art project. On the website, all information is set in Manrope. For images and information, visit Album Art Galerie’s website and Instagram channel.

    Audio Guide Tapes is a series of interviews by Album Art Galerie whereby a guest selects five of their favourite album artworks to display in the gallery and guide you through the selections while you view them. The idea is inspired by the audio guides you get at exhibitions and museums and is another element appropriated from the physical galleries to fit within a digital context.
