COOKIE, the award-winning eatery in Glasgow’s southside, is presenting ‘International Satellite’, an eclectic exhibition pulling together artists from all over the world from the ‘Low Brow’ genre, curated by Recoat Gallery.
Opening on Wednesday 27th October 2010 7-10pm and running till Tuesday 30th November 2010, the show includes some big names like The London Police from Holland, 1010 from Germany, Belgian street artist, Veuch, Alto Contraste, the Brazilian couple and Polish graffiti artists, Sepe and Chazme.
Cookie co-founder, Domenico Del Priore, said: “Until our link up with Recoat, there has been no outlet for contemporary art on the southside. We’re delighted to strengthen our links with this specialist West End gallery, and bring a little of the West End to the southside with this show displaying work from artists with an international stature.
“Cookie is the ideal space within which to show these works. Looking at art while you’re eating and drinking is a perfect match. I always remember Will Alsop, one of the UK’s best-known contemporary architects, say to me that galleries are where people go when the shops are shut.”
Recently named Glasgow Newcomer of the Year 2010 for breaking the mould of local eating and drinking, Cookie is based at 72 Nithsdale Road, Pollokshields, Glasgow.
