The Outsiders Gallery Presents: BORF “See Something, Say Something” (Newcastle, UK)


The Outsiders Newcastle invite you to join us on the evening of Thursday 20th October to celebrate the opening of ‘See Something, Say Something‘, the debut UK solo exhibition from young American artist BORF. The event takes place in the gallery at 77 Quayside, Newcastle upon Tyne, from 6 ’til 9pm.

BORF is one of the brightest young talents in art. Heʼs an angry young man in the finest tradition but his refreshing work makes insurrection delectable.

Formerly a notorious Washington DC graffiti artist, 24 year-old BORF gracefully dodges street art clichés in his gallery shows. He favours watercolours, oil sticks, drawings, sculpture, photography and film over stencils and spray paint. Whereas BORFʼs subject matter is pitiful and angry, his manner is melancholic and idealistic. Rebellion has a romance once more.

See Something, Say Something‘ continues the theme of impassioned revolution against a crumbling status quo. In the city we find abstracted commuters opposite transgressive kids: the former are trying to make a living, the latter trying to live.

PRIVATE VIEW – Thursday 20th October, 6-9 pm, The Outsiders, 77 Quayside, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 3DE

Exhibition open to the public 21st October – 19th November, Tuesday – Saturday 12-6pm, admission free
