The Hang Gang Present RIFFT at BALTIC 39

RIFF/T is an exhibition about painting, abstraction, representation and their respective expanded fields.

Divided into two sequential parts, the works presented focus upon the opposing themes of the harmonious RIFF, and discordant RIFT. Utilising a range of media that reference, mimic and push both ideas integral to painting, and the processes of painting itselfRIFF/T seeks to highlight trends, facets and approaches particular to the medium, now.

The first part now completed, the second part of RIFT will run from 24 January – 2 March 2014 and feature Simon Bedwell, Paul Chiappe, Ross Chisholm, Ruth Claxton, Julie Cockburn, Tom Ellis, Fabienne Hess, Islet, Oliver Michaels, Shana Moulton, Abigail Reynolds, Sebastian Trend, Sarah Tulloch and Casper White and loans from the Conservation department at Northumbria University

To complement the exhibition at BALTIC 39, an events programme will take place in spring 2014. This includes a selection of films, curated by the Hang Gang, at the Tyneside Cinema expanding on themes emerging from the exhibition, from the recurring motifs of RIFF to the counter realities and ruptured narratives of RIFT. Programme notes by curator Matthew Hearn will be provided for each screening.
