NOW I KNOW MY ABC'S
20.07.07 - 29.07.07


The former Comme des Garcons Guerrilla Store, now +44 141 operates from the ground level of SWG3, a distinctive industrial Clydeside space that defines what happens next. With the departure of the store in January, it is time again for this multi-discipline space, with its 220 person capacity, to play host to new guests, new artists, new events and new creative ideas as an open arts facility for regular exhibitions, collaborations, monthly live band nights, fashion parties and club nights. The first exciting visitor to our new space will be an innovative graduate show introducing the next generation of artists to emerge from Scottish Art Schools this year.


Curated by Jamie Kenyon, GSA graduate, the exhibition will showcase an attention-grabbing performance group from ECA, who provide a bespoke cremation service, an extraordinary video installation in the adjacent garage space from a Gray’s graduate, a mesmeric kinetic installation from GSA as well as drawing, photography, painting and site dependent sculpture. The show explores a continuous line of spatial investigations evident in some of this year’s fresh crop of artists and also demonstrates the vast range of curiosities absorbing these young talents.
