VERBureau are delighted to present Pokey Hat at New Glasgow Society for Glasgow International 2016. The project charts elements of social history spanning immigration, queer culture, community and urban development through the history of the Italian ice cream cafés that first appeared throughout Glasgow from the 1880s to the 1930s. Pokey Hat presents five new commissions from artists whose research-driven practices examine the social, political and cultural landscape of the past and present. New Glasgow Society in Finnieston hosts the exhibition with events and artistic interventions extending to locations across the city, including Jaconelli’s, Queens Café, Crolla’s, University Café, Eusebi Deli, Project Café and Peña.
