Tim Minchin, The Teskey Brothers, Ngaiire, Marlon Williams, The Triffids, Aldous Harding and more will feature in this year’s ‘Art of Music’ artwork collection.

The project involves Australian visual artists creating works inspired by a particular song or musician. The artists are able to interpret the task however they see fit, taking inspiration from a song’s lyrics or melody, or an album cover or musician themselves.

Some of the visual artists whose work will be featured this year include Holly Greenhood, who has interpreted ‘Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore’ by Marlon Williams and Aldous Harding, Nicholas Harding with ‘Paint My Heart’ by the Teskey Brothers and Leila Jeffreys, who has focused on ‘Bury Me Deep in Love’ by The Triffids.

Other artists involved in the project include Laura Jones interpreting Ngaiire’s ‘Fall into My Arms’, Guy Maestri with  Nick Cave‘s reading of The Bunyip of Berkeley’s Creek, and Robert Malherbe with ‘All Brand New’ by Underground Lovers.

Each of the works will be auctioned during a gala dinner at the Art Gallery of NSW, with proceeds set to go to Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy.

This year’s event will be held on Saturday, July 17th and will also involve performances by Tim Minchin, Ngaiire and Kate Ceberano.

Minchin’s ‘Airport Piano’, which is featured in the music video for the song itself, will also appear as part of the event.

“I’m so stoked to be part of this amazing event, raising money for a brilliant charity alongside brilliant people,” said Minchin in a statement (via Music Feeds).

Meanwhile, the event’s founder Jenny Morris said Art of Music is aimed at both “seasoned collectors” and those new to the art world alike.

“As always, my thinking around compiling the collection was to cover as many creative disciplines, styles and price ranges as possible so that there is something for everyone. Sailing above all of that of course, is the intent to present quality works,” she said.

“It has always been important to me to present works that will appeal not only to seasoned collectors, but also works that will whet the appetites of those beginning to see the value of buying art.”
