The highly individual and constantly evolving aesthetic of a life lived among motorcycles is an impressive melting pot of both folk and fine art. Over the past Century, a unique style and visual language has developed.
PACK ANIMALS presents the work of 13 artists who for the past 25 years or more been fully immersed in their own version of motorcycle culture and who produce work directly from that experience. Each body of work is unique, but the experience and reference is shared.
A companion exhibition will present today’s influential areas of motorcycle culture drawn from the UK, USA, Japan and Europe. This companion exhibit will feature artefacts, graphic imagery, archival footage and actual machines.
