Chicks on Speed

Don't Art, Fashion, Music

05 June - 08 August 2010

Chicks on Speed are an ever-changing multi-disciplinary art group with a punk-inspired DIY ethic. Their first major solo exhibition in the UK interrogated the boundaries of art, craft, fashion and music.

Known globally for their melting-pot-style – encompassing electro-clash music, performance art, a record label, collage graphics, painting and DIY fashion. Chicks on Speed’s practice is chaotic and firmly against sedative art. With their tongues firmly in their cheeks, they are happy to court controversy.

Don't Art, Fashion, Music merges traditional techniques with new research in technical innovation. Collaborative projects with local and international artists and makers will unfold over the weeks, including the production of the world’s first wireless guitar stilettos.

The Print Space within our Shop has been converted into a Pop-Up Shop featuring work by Chicks on Speed as well as some exciting emergent artists. See the Shop page for more information.

Supported by Goethe-Institut Glasgow
