Vinyl Destination, South Africa’s hottest online vinyl toy and limited edition collectable shop, has teamed up with Cape Town’s flagship Lomography and art gallery store, Exposure Gallery, to bring together a unique and exciting exhibition collaboration happening on the 19th July.
Titled ‘Dreams In Focus’, we are merging the world of vinyl toys and Lomography cameras in a fun and creative way.
We have gathered together an incredible roster of 10 talented local and international artists from around the world to each contribute a custom set, which includes a custom designed 4” vinyl toy & Lomography camera, and a unique 1/1 A4 matching print.
The incredible and tight artist roster, which features big names both locally and internationally in the urban and designer toy scene, includes:
- The Given
- Samantha Breakspear
- Brent Black
- 64 Colors (USA)
- Lunartik (Germany)
- Cris Rose (UK)
- Lunabee (UK)
- VISEone (Germany)
Each of these artists will be contributing a 3-piece collectable set (toy, camera, and print) which will all go on display at Exposure Gallery on the 19th July 2012 and will go on online auction to purchase for the duration of 30 days.
On top of the featured 10 artists, there will also be supporting featured works by other great local designers, such as Hylton Warburton, Frank Skullboy, Wihan Mouton, and Reddprime to name a few.
In our continuous focus on giving back to the local community, the Dreams In Focus show has teamed up with the Children’s Hospital Trust. Proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Children’s Hospital Trust with 100% of the donation going towards the Rehabilitation Programme within the newly upgraded Burns Unit at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital. The Children’s Hospital Trust fundraises for the Hospital and Paediatric Healthcare in the Western Cape.
The Dreams In Focus exhibition opening night will be happening at the Exposure Gallery itself, situated at The Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, Cape Town, on the evening of 19th July and we want to invite and welcome everyone to join in the festivities.
On the evening we will be officially unveiling all 10 custom sets from the artists, and have a station where you can start bidding on your favourite pieces.
There will also be drinks and snacks available, as well as a variety of Lomography cameras and Vinyl Destination toy stock for sale at discounted prices on the night. For all those unable to make it, we will also be live-streaming the event via uStream online so you can virtually join the fun!
Dreams In Focus aims to bring together the vinyl toy and photography scene all while supporting and giving back to the community. We cordially invite each and every one of you to join us on the 19th July at Exposure Gallery at 6pm till late to have fun, bid on some collectable art pieces, and support the communities involved!
