Collecting the Beatles’ “White Album,” an art project

NewImage

NewImageArtist Rutherford Chang has opened a very curious record shop in Portland’s Recess gallery. It’s filled with more than 650 first pressings of the Beatles’ White Album. And nothing else. You can’t buy any of them, but Chang will happily purchase yours, in any condition. He’s also recording every time someone listens to one of the records to create new layered audio works.
