Versus?


The lovely fellows in Turtlehead are opening an amazing new shop / gallery in Temple bar Dublin called Versus? and have asked myself and Rich Gilligan to go head to head for the art bit for the first show which opens on the 17th of this Month.

This is from their site and explains how it works:

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.

This sounds like a brilliant idea. Must try to visit next time I'm in Dublin.

This looks like it'll be great fun. Brilliant to have someone promoting Irish creativity!
