Academy Records is a collaborative platform that manifests site-specific installations, stages live performances, and exhibits visual artworks composed with various media, including but not limited to sculpture, film, music/sound, drawing and printed ephemera. Helmed by Stephen Lacy, Academy Records aims to immerse viewers in the many conceptual layers of its projects, which often meld together histories and themes drawn from music, film, industry and landscape. In the past, works have consisted of participatory sculptures and stages, independently produced 7-inch records, live broadcast radio plays, live and recorded performances, and cinematic installations. Academy Records’ productions purposefully utilize simple means, readily available resources, and experimental ideas. Each endeavor is concept specific, and usually of a DIY nature to encompass the various communities and networks of smaller economies.
