Forty years after their launch in a small shop in London’s Oxford Street in 1973, Virgin Records are celebrating with a temporary exhibition of memorabilia – featuring seen and unseen photos, original and rejected versions of album cover artwork and video installations.
Virgin Records have cemented its reputation on doing the unexpected. It’s desire to think creatively, challenge conceptions and take risks have lead to Virgin Records being at the forefront of almost every key musical movement of the past forty years.
Founder Richard Branson proudly stated:
“Virgin Records is where it all started for Virgin and 40 years later it’s great to see we are still being innovative. This exciting series of events is the perfect way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Virgin Records and the artists… who continue to disrupt the status quo.”
This disruptive force in the music industry has signed artists such as Daft Punk, Deadmau5, David Guetta and The Chemical Brothers.
The free exhibition at Studio B1 will remain open to the public until October 29.
