Glasgow International Festival of Contemporary Art

Hang Linton

The images shown above represent the Glasgow International 2024 project that Hang Linton is participating in, not the artist’s individual practice.

Hang Linton is a self-taught, interdisciplinary artist, working in music, performance, dance, video, sculpture and installation. Their personal practice explores otherness through sound, non-linear time concepts, community and public art. Splicing avant-funk, dance-punk and breakbeats, their art is a rebellion against clean aesthetics, inspired by past experiences, changing global events and the ugliness in the world. Hang bends your ear around the counterculture sounds and movements that have shaped him. Hang has performed and exhibited at Gropius Bau Berlin, BALTIC Centre for Creative Arts Gateshead, and the Howard Assembly Rooms Leeds. Their most recent sound and visuals work Blue Light Hike, a project about being racially attacked by the police, will be screened online with Video Club and in-person screenings at HAU Berlin and VIVO Media Arts Vancouver, with an accompanying score for the audience to participate in.
