PRESSING MATTERS >
Helium London presents ‘Pressing Matters’, in association with Music Support and MATCHESFASHION. Curated and created by culture Pavement Licker, it’s a unique exhibition and fundraising auction, seeing leading contemporary artists creating unique pieces from rare test pressings and vinyl, donated from the biggest names in the music industry. Launching on May 4th, Pressing Matters will open its doors to art collectors and music fans alike for a month long show at 5 Carlos Place – the central London home of MATCHESFASHION – with an online auction for the pieces at www.heliumlondon.com. Crucially, every last penny raised from the auction will be in aid of Music Support – the grassroots charity offering help and support for those in or employed by the UK music industry affected by mental ill-health and/or addiction. They facilitate education and learning via workshops and training to individuals and organisations in the industry so they may be better equipped in the areas of awareness, early intervention and prevention. Coinciding with Music Support’s 5th anniversary, music artists, their management teams and record labels have come together to support their peers who may be struggling, now more so than ever due to the ongoing impact of Covid.
