Barry McGee Show

At the Baltic Centre from 21 January - 27 April 2008 is a show created by the legendary (and personal fave) Barry McGee. "They Don’t Make This Anymore" is his first solo show in the UK and deals with the ideas of property, surveillance and control, his uncontained practice incorporates damaged surfaces, flash movies and hundreds of ‘tape’ paintings to question the privatisation of public space. It is also interesting that he decided to exhibit in Gateshead (Newcastle) instead of the usual London-based shows. Wish I could see it in person......sigh.
