GAG Radical Art School Launch Event

Within the walls of On The Corner (one of many self-funded community arts spaces springing up around Glasgow) GAG radical art school held its launch event on 27 August. While there were frantic, urgent ravings from scene regulars such as Futurology, Adam V. Cheshire, and Loki, the highlight of the evening was the exhibition put on by organisers Rebecca Scott – who designed The Twistettes’ album cover – and Keira McLean.

A shambolic haze of vinyl, paint, mirrors, exposed canvas, and hanging plastic ducks, the artwork wrestled with poetic musings on the beauty myth, equality, gentrification, and the role of the artist in society. There were screenprinted t-shirts made by the pair too, with slogans such as ‘Pussy Power’, ‘Conform, Obey, Consume’, and ‘Resistance Is Fertile’. It was awesome to see.

GAG radical art school will be holding a series of workshops throughout September, beginning with a ‘History of Art’ session at on 3 September at Govanhill Baths, 99 Calder St, Glasgow G42 7RA from 12-5pm.
