Presseinfo

Chicks on Speed is a leading-edge, multi-disciplinary art collective, blurring the lines between Music, Art, Fashion, New Media technologies and performance to create their own Brand of GESAMTKUNSTWERK.

New Yorker Melissa Logan & Australian born Alex Murray-Leslie formed Chicks on Speed at the Munich Art Academy in 1997, they propelled themselves into the world of music, as a commercially functioning pop act, with a special mix of irony & electronic beats, merged with video, choreography and fashion, which was soon labeled Electroclash. Their notorious live performances & stage outfits, led them to work with fashion luminaries including Jeremy Scott, Karl Lagerfeld & JC de Castelbajac; on fashion sound tracks for catwalks, photoshoots & capsule collecions. They’ve collaborated widely in the world of Music, with acts such as B52’s & Yoko Ono, Peaches, Red Hot Chilli Peppers & James Brown.

From 2008-2011, the groups activities culminated in a series of large scale multimedia exhibitions and performances titled ART RULES, which were Staged at museums & foudations; Centre Pompidiou, MoMA, Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao, MoMAK Japan, Thyssen Bornesmizsa Art Contemporary 21, Vienna, Dundee Contemporary Arts, Serralves Museum, Porto & Craft Victoria, Australia in collaboration with artists: Douglas Gordon, A.L. Steiner, Christopher Just & Anat Ben David. Chicks on Speed are currently working towards developing an Album APP, titled Scream, with ZKM, Centre for Art and Media, Karlsruhe in November this year.

SCREAM will be released on Chicks on Speed records and Itunes in 2013 with extensive live performances planned in global cultural capitals.
