About

Barry McGee's first major UK solo exhibition includes a selection of existing and new works in an installation created specifically for BALTIC's Level 2 gallery. Rooted in the spontaneity and immediacy of graffiti culture, McGee's direct approach considers both the melancholy and humour of life. Disrupting 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.
