Ninja Tune: 20 Years Of Beats + Pieces | London Exhibition

To celebrate the release of Black Dog Publishing‘s latest title in their Labels Unlimited series, new exhibition Ninja Tune: 20 Years of Beats + Pieces opens tomorrow at Black Dog’s Space in King’s Cross, London.

This will be the first exhibition in the UK dedicated to Ninja Tune and its offshoot labels, and their legacy with a host of acclaimed international artists including Cinematic Orchestra, Daedelus, Roots Manuva, Ty, Mr Scruff, The Bug and more recently, Andreya Triana.

The exhibition coincides with Ninja Tune XX – a series of events celebrating 20 years of the label – and displays a decade’s worth of “posters, original drawings, paintings and 3D models and artwork from Ninja and its subsidiary labels; many never seen before outside of the Ninja offices”.

Also on show will is a vast collection of flyers, stickers, special pressings, merchandise, promotional items, tour laminates, LP and CD sleeves, artwork, esoterica and more – such as the rather striking photo below of UK Hip Hop legend Roots Manuva, as shot by Lee Vincent Grubb.

Venue: Black Dog (10a Acton St, London WC1X 9NG)
Dates: 20th August until 16th September 2010
Open: Monday to Friday, 12-5pm

In the final week of the exhibition, Black Dog will open a one day Ninja pop-up shop, selling many items of merchandise and music at discounted prices, including posters, clothing and rare promo CDs. The Ninja Tune pop-up shop takes place on Saturday 11 September at Black Dog Space between 12-5pm.
