MoMA opened a pop-up record store
MoMA has opened a pop-up record store as part of its Design Store in Soho. In partnership with Williamsburg’s Earwax Records, The Record Shop features albums that are part of MoMA’s permanent collection, including Nirvana’s Nevermind, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, Talking Heads’ Fear of Music and Remain in Light, The Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main Street, Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew, Duran Duran’s Rio, Kraftwerk’s The Man-Machine, David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane, The Beatles’ Abbey Road and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Velvet Underground & Nico, The Ramones’ debut album and more.
Additionally there are fine art prints of concert posters, books, and even record players like the very groovy — and very expensive — Brionvega Radiofonografo Radio and Turntable. The Record Shop at MoMA Design Store will be up through March 1 and you can also shop online. There are special events, too, where Earwax’s Fabio Roberti will DJ and give demonstrations on how to clean and store vinyl.
In other news, BAM is hosting the Never Records installation which opens next week.
