Seventh Movement - Paris Timelapse

Wow, what a video. I'm a sucker for timelapses but seriously when I saw this film I was just mesmorized. It's beautiful. If you've never been to Paris - watch this. Even if you have been to Paris - watch this. It's about 18mins long but it is worth every minute of your time. And reading the story of the making is pretty cool too on the website.

Kitch-en Gallery Review in The Crack Magazine


Find below a 'Cracking' (excuse the pun) review of the Kitch-en Gallery Relaunch exhibition as published in the May issue of The Crack Magazine. Click here for the article on their website.


Kitch-en Gallery,
Opening night, Newcastle


As the hipsters huddled, sucking sublimely on cigarettes, it was almost as though we’d been transposed to NYC. But no, this was still NCL and it was the opening of pop-up gallery and online art store Kitch-en. I looked at the louche group, yep this is an art opening. Slightly intimidated, I sneaked past those super cool things, expecting scowls and disdainful stares, but I think, I think, I saw a smile. Confidence built up, a tiny bit, I entered the space. Bodies filled the gallery. And not just the, those in the know art crowd. Accounts and artist rubbed shoulders, scenesters and suites joked, lawyers and creatives swapped contacts. The amazing mix mash vibe was hustled along by the grooved up grooves, it was almost like the perfect bar, club, cafĂ© thing, but no, it was a gallery. So to the art work. This was as much a hodgepodge as the crowd. The finely detailed art work of Craww, mixed with the graffiti style work of Sune, juxtaposed with the Parkour photography of Alexander James. The eclectic collection totally summed up everything that Kitch-en Gallery is all about, showing a breadth and variety unseen anywhere else in Newcastle. As I wondered up from the basement I was thinking that it may be time to head home. But I saw a huddle forming. I got to the periphery just in time to see the first skippity moves that occur just before a breakdance move is busted (oh yeah down with the kids). Local street dance heroes, Bad Taste Cru, had been hovering around waiting for the right moment to showcase a few of their trickster skills and wow the crowd. Could this night have got any better? It was then a group of newly made up friends cajoled me to heading to the aftershow soiree at Alvinos. The promise of more Morretti loosened my resolve. Once there I mingled with some of the artists, the Kitch-en boys, and a hundred others. Closing time rolled round way to quick, but by then it really was time to go. So I staggered and smiled into the night.

Full credit goes to Scott Illingworth for writing this for us. Thanks!

Relaunch Review

Deconstruction has begun


The deconstruction of our relaunch exhibition at 18-20 Ridley Place has begun.

Nearly all the work is now down, awaiting collection or to be stored for online sales.

It's always sad taking down an exhibition, especially one of such high calibre, I wish it could remain up permanently for all to see but as the saying goes, you close one door and open another... so now its time to say goodbye Newcastle (for now) and to look forward to London early winter for our next big show!

Although the exhibition itself is going and the doors will be locked, the window display will remain for the foreseeable future, so be sure to keep checking back here for updates on that as we'll be putting together a programme of exciting creative happenings to take place in the window over the coming months.

Slideshow Teaser

We've put together a rather spiffing little (well it's quite long actually) video slideshow of our new line-up of artists featuring past and present work including stuff that will be featured in the exhibition and online.

It should help whet your appetites a little bit. The slideshow will be viewable in our window display on alternative evenings to Barry Self's projection.


Kitch-en Gallery Relaunch Teaser from Kitch-en Gallery on Vimeo.

Barry Self - A Retrospective

With help from Sandy at Ghetto Method, we've put together a fantastic collection of photos by Barry Self.

Barry is a North East photographer who relentlessly documented the hip hop & breakdancing scene here in Newcastle and beyond throughout his life. He sadly passed away at the New Year and now Kitch-en Gallery has the privilege of presenting his very fine collection of photos, many of them never seen before. RIP Barry, known by many, forgotten by none!

This video slideshow will be projected into our window display on alternate nights from 5 - 9pm over the next week or so so be sure to go and take a look. We'll also be featuring a number of Barry's photos in our relaunch exhibition so don't miss that either.
