Exhibition

The artists along with hair salon/art gallery DKUK occupy a number of spaces throughout the Savoy Centre – Glasgow’s self-proclaimed oldest shopping centre.

This exhibition considers the history of the shopping centre as a space for activating communities, alongside the current trends of online buying and generic shopping centres. The artists explore questions of authenticity, value, exchange and choice. This exhibition re-configures the notion of a ‘lifestyle centre’, which typically focuses on shopping as an experience and the centre as a multi-purpose leisure destination.

DIY capitalism, the death of authenticity and the tricks used to make goods seem more unique and less mass-produced are called into focus, while the future of the Savoy Centre and the role art plays in urban redevelopment is considered.
