Hang-Up Gallery Launch
Offering nearly 2000sq ft of contemporary space, 5-metre-high ceilings with an abundance of natural light, the new gallery will open on Thursday 28th November with a dynamic group exhibition showcasing Hang-Up’s roster of primary and secondary market artists including Banksy, Grayson Perry, Harland Miller, Joe Webb, Tim Fishlock and KAWS.
Moving from its original Dalston space to the striking new waterfront location in Hoxton, the building has been completely stripped back, dug out and remodelled over an eight-month period. It is now a sharp, purpose-built contemporary gallery space with architectural floor to ceiling doors and polished concrete floors. The new space will enable Hang-Up to present much larger scale exhibitions.
Director Ben Cotton says, “We are increasingly focused on showing original works and paintings, both in secondary and primary markets. And now we have a bigger space, for bigger shows.” Highlights of the launch exhibition include a rare grey artist’s proof of Banksy’s Morons, the latest signed, numbered colour etching by Grayson Perry, a print release from The Connor Brothers and large new paintings from Dave White and Tim Fishlock alongside new work from Joe Webb and Nina Saunders.
