Award-winning Yorkshire indie rock band the Kaiser Chiefs are famous for their unique blend of musical genres and chart-topping hits. In 2018, the band collaborated with York Art Gallery to co-curate an innovative exhibition, which explored the liminal spaces between art and sound, sensation and perception, and creation and performance. As part of the display, they hand-picked 11 paintings from the Gallery's collection to show alongside a selection of songs by contemporary musicians and sound artists which have directly influenced their practice.
