Seripop, a Weekend Long Event of Printmaking, Illustration and Live Music, to be Held at Baltic
Seripop’s installation of two and three dimensional psychedelic screen prints and illustrations will be housed in Baltic’s Level 1 .

GATESHEAD.- Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art presents a three day event with Canadian art duo, Seripop from Friday 31 July to Sunday 2 August 2009. Seripop artists Chloe Lum and Yannick Desranleau have joined forces with guest curator Sophie Brown to bring a weekend of design, print, illustrations and live music to Baltic.

Seripop’s installation of two and three dimensional psychedelic screen prints and illustrations will be housed in Baltic’s Level 1 Performance Space, creating a unique environment for performances from 10 live music bands over two nights, including Lum and Desranleau’s very own band Hamborghinni. The live music will come from the likes of TEETH!!!, a three piece London based electronic dance band who all hail from an art, design and fashion background; Beards from Leeds who dress in homemade costumes and face paint making a theatrical performance; Birmingham based Phil Duckworth and Ben Sadler aka juneau brothers, who sing and play handmade electronic sculptural instruments inspired by folk history and Newcastle based modern folk trio Les Cox (sportifs).

Seripop are driven by a DIY underground music scene and create posters and artwork for their own band AIDS Wolf and other musicians. From this they have spearheaded an exciting independent art scene, which is more familiar outside of traditional gallery spaces. Seripop are concerned with experimenting with surrealist imagery on their own terms instead of creating commercial artwork. In despite of this their prints and designs have become very collectable and these young artists are forming a vibrant and successful international scene.

A roster of five live bands will perform on the evenings of Friday 31 July and Saturday 1 August 2009. Tickets for both gigs can now be purchased in advance in person from Baltic Shop or online from:

Price: £8.00 + 10% booking fee
Friday 13 July and Saturday 1 August 2009
Doors: 7.30pm

In addition to the live music programme Seripop’s installation will be free to view during gallery hours on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 August and will also be accompanied by a free film programme which will be shown in the adjacent Level 1 cinema, a Ricochet! Ricochet! fanzine distro stall with representation from North East fanzine makers and an opportunity to buy prints from the best of current UK screenprinters.

A free fanzine for the event has been created by ‘zine makers Ricochet! Ricochet! and Craft Club and will be available alongside other Seripop merchandise and silkscreened posters throughout both shows. BALTIC Shop will be selling Seripop prints and associated merchandise, with products also available to buy online at
