Because the real hero of Art Vinyl is the record sleeves themselves, we run a program of exhibitions that celebrate the best in sleeve design.


Best Art Vinyl 2019

To portray who attended the Art Vinyl exhibition

All change for Best Art Vinyl 2019 Award presentation with our new exhibition partners The Auction Collective .

Introducing a new dynamic to the Art Vinyl concept, this year’s exhibition also featured original works from some of the nominees and other contemporary music-related artworks.

The public vote placed French band Klones’ sleeve art, depicting the broken symmetry of sun and clouds for the album ‘Le Grand Voyage’, in first place; Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds’ fantasy landscape for Ghosteen in second; and in third, Efterklang the Danish band’s 6th album on the always graphically credible 4AD record label.  See the full list of BAV 2019 nominees that made up the exhibition.

The good news is you can still see Best Art Vinyl 2019 in full, as it is available as a Virtual Reality Exhibition .
