(AND GIVES IT A CHINESE BURN)
Versus? is a new gallery/shop brought to you by turtlehead. Versus? will pit shit cool t-shirt brands from around the world against turtlehead’s own designs, as well as pitting different artists, photographers and musicians against each other. These t-shirts and artists will be on show for two weeks only, before we bring in 2 new artists and 2 new sets of t-shirts to go head to head. Each artist will be leaving one piece as part of our permanent display.
First up in the t-shirt category is turtlehead versus Threadless. In the art category it’s Rich Gilligan (photography) versus Chris Judge (illustration). And in the music section, it’s Dublin band Rollers/Sparkers’ new album “Hames” versus their previous album “Second Level Crossing”.
Versus? will officially open with a launch party on Thursday 17th July, featuring guest artists and DJs. Also on the night, turtlehead will be launching a new t-shirt by the Irish artist Frankenstyles entitled “Touchy Feely”. This invite is open to anyone in that neck of the woods and there will be refreshments on the night provided by our good friends at Peroni.
Versus? will also stock art books, quirky Japanese vinyl toys, satchels and other weird and wonderful art pieces from around the globe.
Artists on show over the summer will include Tracy Emin, David Shrigley, Damien Hirst, Dave Comiskey, Gaetan Billault, Chris Judge, Genevieve Gauckler, BrenB, tiny little horse, Rich Gilligan, Will Bryant, Paul Kelly and Frankenstyles (and a few more surprises)
