Relaunch Review

On Thursday 4th March 2010 at 6pm inside a disused shop unit in Newcastle (and in the virtual world of www dots all around the world) Kitch-en Gallery officially relaunched with a brand new line-up artists and a slick new website.

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.

Sune Live Artwork

Sune is working LIVE in our window display as I type.

If you're kicking around Newcastle and you want to see how the graff legend works pop down and gawp through the window. Bring a crowd and get a street party going as well if you want.

His work will remain on display in the window throughout our relaunch event. For those of you with the readies we have two exclusive pieces of work on canvas featuring in the exhibition too.

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.

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.
