The Coral to star in new exhibition in Harrogate
The Coral: Distance Inbetween is a new exhibition documenting the music, artwork and stories behind the Merseyside band’s most recent album
Back in March, The Coral released Distance Inbetween, their first album since 2010. This mini-comeback for the much-loved Hoylake five-piece will now be followed by a special exhibition of the same name that documents the music, artwork and stories behind the album.
Presented by Harrogate's RedHouse Originals Gallery, the exhibition will centre around artwork by The Coral’s drummer and co-songwriter Ian Skelly, who has produced the art for the band’s album covers since their debut in 2002. It’s promised that the exhibition will include psychedelic, Victorian-inspired cut and paste collages presented alongside surreal comic book-style illustrations by the drummer. “Skelly has created a striking visual world for the album to inhabit,” reads the statement announcing the exhibition. “And now, for the first time, fans of the band will be invited to step inside.”
As well as this archive of work, Skelly has also created special edition prints that “document the songs and the stories behind the music.” You’ll also find other artefacts and ephemera on display that inspired the album.
The Coral: Distance Inbetween exhibition opens to the public for two weeks only from 8-22 Dec and coincides with the band's UK tour, which runs 8-17 Dec.
