Antonio Riello: B.Square!: T-Shirt
Archive Shelf Location 11B1(2)
Publication Date 2009

Italian artist Antonio Riello creates for BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art a series of unique outfits to be worn by the gallery staff from Friday 16 January until the end of March 2009. This artistic intervention goes beyond the mere exhibition space of the gallery, moving into places not usually seen by the public with front of house, office staff and directors all taking part.

The outfits at first glance appear to be a uniform created from a unique tartan however this choice of cloth is being used as a symbol or device to examine the ideas of belonging and identity. The work is also free from the restraints of locality as it doesn’t use the principal gallery spaces; the artist has been given the freedom to infiltrate locations and situations throughout the entire building, with manifestations of his work spilling out into meetings, discussions and staff recreational areas as well as all public spaces.
