Jason Rhoades, Four Roads will be the first major gallery exhibition of the work of this exceptional artist who died in 2006 at the age of 41. Rhoades lived and worked in Los Angeles.

Jason Rhoades, Four Roads will occupy BALTIC’s two largest floors, with four installations to be navigated by four interpretive paths or roads: Jason Rhoades, American Artist; Jason the Mason, (a biographical thread named for a childhood nickname); Systems (language, scale, indexing, economies), and PeaRoeFoam. By foregrounding these themes, the exhibition aims to open up for investigation Rhoades’s spectacular, overloaded installations. Immediately accessible and eye-catching, these works are at the same time deeply systematic, detailed, and rewarding of careful engagement. Using neon, plastic buckets, power tools, snaking wires, figurines, sound, and a vast range of other materials, including a V8 engine, Rhoades’s work brings the viewer in with humour, vibrancy, and the provocative audacity of his vision. The show will be anchored by four major installations.
