Jeremy Fish and Upper Playground have teamed up to create a new app to bring Fish’s groundbreaking “Listen and Learn” exhibition to your iPad and iPhone. In conjunction with the app’s launch, Jeremy Fish has illustrated (and we mean hand drew, with his actual hands) the back of a brand new iPad 2 being given away on Upper Playgrond’s Facebook page.
This past summer at Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC, Jeremy Fish created an interactive exhibition featuring 30 paintings based on stories told my some of Fish’s closest friends and inspirational talents. Each painting was accompanied with headphones to allow visitors to listen to the audio recordings while viewing Jeremy’s visual interpretation of the story on the wall. Fish gathered Snoop Dogg, Aesop Rock, Mike Giant, Lance Mountain, El-P, Ron English, Ricky Powell, and many others to get some of their most inspiring stories on record.
As not all of Fish’s closest fans made it out to the exhibition, we have collaborated on the “Listen and Learn” app, bringing the interactive experience to your iPad and iPhone and bring new life to Fish’s “story paintings” and most experimental gallery show to date. The app comes bundled with 30 images of Fish’s paintings and 1.5 hours of audio stories that accompanied and inspired each piece. The “Listen and Learn” app also comes with a handful of videos and gallery of images from Fish’s exhibition.
To kick off the launch of the “Listen and Learn” app, Fish has illustrated (in black Sharpie) on the back of a brand new iPad 2, being given away now on Upper Playground’s Facebookpage. To enter the contest, simply include your email address in the contest link on the lower left side of the Upper Playground Facebook page. One winner at random will get a Fish customized iPad 2. The contest runs through December 31, 2011.
