Super Cool Drawing Machine | Future Yard

Exhibition, 15th-18th July

Yuppies Music presents Super Cool Drawing Machine, a touring exhibition of musicians’ “other” artwork. The exhibition will take up residency at Future Yard between 15th and 18th July 2021. Rising from the ashes of the Covid-19 crisis, Super Cool Drawing Machine is a celebration of the visual art created by a host of internationally acclaimed, touring musicians. It is set to bring engaging and exciting artistic creations – and a much-needed dose of fun – back into the UK’s treasured music spaces.

Drawn from diverse musical genres and backgrounds, the artists include trailblazing saxophonist and figurehead of the UK jazz scene Shabaka Hutchings, Mercury-nominated Welsh singer/producer Cate Le Bon, experimental folk musician Richard Dawson, African American experimentalist Lonnie Holley (who has previously exhibited in the likes of the Turner Contemporary gallery), celebrated drummer/composer Seb Rochford, anti-folk hero Adam Green, and former Maccabees frontman Orlando Weeks, as well as members of This is The Kit, Mammal Hands, Haiku Salut, Snapped Ankles and many more. (Full list below).
