PechaKucha Presentation

Artist and Filmmaker Don Levy

PRESENTED ON APR 12, 2016
IN GLASGOW @ VOL 27

Alexander Storey Gordon is a curator, artist and writer currently based in Fife and Glasgow. Sitting productively between these roles Storey Gordon curates and makes film, text, performances and events that focus on how the relationship between our bodies, our built environment, and others is mediated through contemporary art, film and literature. In his curatorial, art and written work this is achieved through a rigorous experimentation with the structures, codes, and conventions that govern and channel our reading of experience, time and event.

For GI Pecha Kucha, Storey Gordon will give a presentation on the artist and filmmaker Don Levy and the exhibition Don Levy: Time Regained, presented by Storey Gordon at SWG3 as part of GI 2016. Touching on wider themes of time, edit and the problem of the archive, the presentation will collage together different materials from exhibition research.

Don Quijote price with the Isetan shopping experience

BY MEGUMI SHIOBARA
@ POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA: STARTUP THE PARTY SF X TOKYO ON SEP 18, 2014

Itent on melding the convenience of Japan's favorite everything-store Don Quijote, and the luxurious experience of Isetan, Will Stockwell, Megumi Shiobara, Reinis Udris, and Hideo Chikaike try to capture the essence of what makes each retailer unique. 

Avoiding the cramped space, poor service and long lines of Don Quijote, people rather pay the extra cash for better experience. What shoppers really want, are brand products without the feeling of shopping a mosh pit, and without the heavy price tag.

Here, Just Now

BY DEUCE DEUCE
@ VOL 27 ON APR 12, 2016

Deuce Deuce is a nomadic curatorial collaboration between Elizabeth Murphy and Amy Jones, occupying retail and exhibition formats to explore the cross-over between art, apparel and the absorption of sub-culture into the mainstream. 

Deuce Deuce is keen to support emerging practise, often working with recent graduates giving them their first commissioning opportunity. For HERE we have merged this ethos to include more established practises, giving these artists a space to explore an alternate aspect to there making. Having a print basis in the practise is not a pre-requisite for us when approaching practitioners, we know this project is unusual so we work closely with the selected artists to adapt and develop ideas for production.
