From radical innovations in the use of colour and form to new materials like neon and interactive, kinetic sculpture, this exhibition reveals some of the most original art of the last 100 years.

The time: 1930s. The place: South America. The stage was set for a major innovation in art. Over the next 50 years, artists across five cities would pioneer a new visual language to express their deeply held beliefs about art and its power to change the world around them.

Radical Geometry brings together work from the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros by some of the great innovators of South American modern art, from Torres-García in Uruguay to Lygia Clark in Brazil, from Maldonado in Argentina to Gego in Venezuela. Inspired by European artists such as Mondrian and Kandinsky, their bold experiments with space, movement and colour radically transformed the relationship between art and viewer.

Dancer Master, the vibrant and energetic multi-media show by the talented RUN – artist, muralist and street artist. Dancer Master will celebrate painting, rhythm, body language and dynamism in a new body of work created exclusively for Hang-Up.

Revealing his core inspirations behind the show, RUN explains, “Many years ago when visiting South India, a taxi driver that was driving me around the streets of the city of Colombo took me to a Hindu temple. Pointing to a statue of a divinity he said to me, “Here lies the dancer master”. The statue was beautiful; full of colours, with hands and arms that were made to give the viewer the impression of a dance of the spirit”.

Since then, RUN’s work has taken the direction of multiculturalism and has a distinct ethnic flavour. His signature style can be defined as traditional craft meets fine art with a modern touch of the urban, street art influence. Fascinated with life, feelings, cultures and ideas, RUN welcomes us to a new world – complex, but full of colours, spiritual and vivacious. Known for his love of travel and experiencing diverse, unfamiliar cultures, the artist returns to London with ‘Dancer Master’ to push the boundaries of the known and expected and give a totally different meaning of life and art as we know it.

For over forty years, following a career as an international model and actor, Rudi Patterson dedicated himself to painting. From the three successive council flats he lived in around Notting Hill he produced a vast body of work, exhibiting widely in London, the UK and internationally – from New York to Melbourne – throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s.

Following his death last year, this exhibition explores a single theme; Rudi’s extraordinarily potent and vivid representations of his native Jamaica. Including many works never previously exhibited, these depictions of montane landscapes, plantation villages, luxuriant tropical vegetation, rivers and beaches conjure a compelling sense of place, intuitively made from the vantage point of a west London window.
