London Calling Project

Background

It is thirty years in December since the release of the now infamous London Calling album by The Clash.

The artist Ray Lowry who died in October last year designed the iconic album sleeve.

The Proposal

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the London Calling album and the life of Ray Lowry there will be a very unique art exhibition staged in the heart of London.

Thirty recognised artists from around the world have been invited to take part in this special event lending their support to The Ray Lowry Foundation.

The artist’s have been asked to produce an album-sized piece of art in their own developed style based on their interpretation of London Calling.

Artists have been encouraged to look at how The Clash and the Punk movement influenced them, their art and society.

The thirty-framed pieces will be on display for two weeks in December at the Idea Generation Gallery, London.

Future Plans

The collection will then move to Europe, Russia, America, Australia and the Far East and then returns to London where Christies will auction the work with all proceeds going to the Ray Lowry Foundation.

Corporate Partners

Christies, Levis and Manchester Metropolitan University
