This exhibition was due to take place during Glasgow International 2020, 23 April – 10 May, which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. The festival will be re-staged in 2021 with dates to be announced.

Uncover hidden layers of Glasgow history through three-person exhibition, Sex Club. Artists Erika Silverman, Raymond Strachan, and Debbie Young, whose diverse practices span painting, sculpture, film and textiles, aim to draw out some of the building’s past narratives, partly still visible if you look closely enough.

Sex Club takes place at 40 Fox Street a handsome stone building that has housed some notorious recent tenants. In the early 2000s there was a private college accused of false advertising (the sign is still visible outside). Then there was a private members’ club. The exhibition provokes discussion about sex, public health, queer spaces, kinks and intimacy within an urban context. Entry is via 86 Maxwell Street previously home to Legs and Co. strip club.
