COOKING SECTIONS (DANIEL FERNÁNDEZ PASCUAL & ALON SCHWABE), CARRIE GOOCH, JULIE HILL, ROSIE O’GRADY, RACHEL SHARPE
Pokey hat is Glaswegian slang for an ice-cream cone. Curatorial collective VERBureau presents an exploration into the socio-political history of the city through its ice-cream trade.
This ambitious project takes the form of a group exhibition of new works with artistic interventions and events extending beyond the gallery. Each artist is responding to a collection of research material that VERBureau has collated, which encompasses issues of identity, pop and queer culture, immigration, leisure, community and crime.
The artists are concerned with the intersections of the social, political and cultural landscape of the past and present, and research into these areas grounds their practices.
Four free events will be hosted in the gallery space and two local cafés: a recipe sharing workshop, a talk and artist screening, a storytelling workshop and an ice cream film night. Please find booking information for each event on the respective pages below.
Supported by New Glasgow Society.
