Originally built in the fifties for Highland distillery companies, and since then often mistaken for Barlinnie prison, The Whisky Bond is one of a number of re-appropriated spaces located in the Speirs Lock area of Glasgow. The imposing red brick building stands tall alongside the canal, and houses a multitude of studios and a sizeable ground floor gallery. With an aesthetic squarely rooted in an industrial past, the space commands a particular gravity over visitors, making for a unique viewing experience.
Currently the home of Glasgow Sculpture Studios, you can expect a wide variety of installations and creations from both newly emerging talent and established artists. They top the list in terms of artist support with an incredible range of fellowships, residencies and exchange opportunities up for grabs, with much of the work produced being exhibited on the premises and in turn having created a hearty community of dedicated professionals.
