Last Day: 3D "Fire Sale" @ Lazarides, LondonJuxtapoz // Thursday, 20 Jun 2013
Well, shit, its the last day to see Massive Attack's 3D and his solo show Fire Sale at Lazarides Rathbone in London, but hey, better late than ever. The show represents a u"nique retrospective of painting and design that have helped define Massive Attack over the past 20 years, covering the pages of sketchbooks to 12 million record sleeves.Previously unseen pieces created for Massive Attack's latest album Heligoland (2010) will be exhibited alongside archival works painted and screen printed for the first time from 1991's Blue Lines and 1994's Protection.
Robert's ongoing collaboration with UVA with whom he designed Massive Attack's hugely influential live shows are represented in digital mirror pieces. Fire Sale will be the first and only time these pieces will be collected in one place: images have been hand-finished and are one-offs, enhanced and redacted especially for this show.
