Record Sleeve Art – From Warhol to Banksy with Rockdoc.
Talk and discussion with collector Richard Forrest aka Rockdoc and curator John Peter Nilsson.

For the first time all the record sleeves Andy Warhol is known to have designed are on show in the Warhol 1968 exhibition that closes on 8th September. This unique collection of record covers comes from Richard Forrest’s (a k a Rockdoc) collection. Richard Forrest began to collect records in the late sixties and together with exhibition curator John Peter Nilsson will have a discussion about the history of record sleeve art in general with special reference to Warhol’s contribution.
When Warhol arrived in New York in 1949 his first contacts were with record companies and glossy magazines looking for commissions. He quickly scored with Columbia Records, RCA and its subsidiary Camden Records and later with jazz labels Prestige and Blue Note. Warhol’s first cover for a rock band was the famous ”Banana” cover for his ”own” band, the Velvet Underground.

Plan B at Moderna Museet!
The last week of our popular Warhol exhibition, we invite Plan B to show a photo exhibition and perform a concert with one of the bands associated with Plan B; Mary Anne’s Polar Rig. We celebrate the last week with Warhol in a The Factory-inspired atmosphere! Warhol’s studio The Factory in New York was, similar to what Plan B on Norra Grängesbergsgatan is today, a platform for creativity and a meeting place for music, culture, people. Malmö-based photographer Gianluca La Bruna has documented the concerts and life around Plan B since its inception in 2015. We now show these photos in an exhibition in Lastkajen during the last Warhol week.
Later this evening, there will be a concert with the band Mary Anne´s Polar Rig at Ola Billgren’s place. The Malmö band that started their career at Plan B plays their nineties-scented indierock between 8pm – 9pm. Our café Bröd och Vänner is open until 10 pm and offers food and drinks all evening!
