Presque Rien / Geukens & De ViL Contemporary Art

26 January – 10 March 2019

Tim’s neon ‘Keep it Simple’ features in this group show at Geukens & De Vil Contemporary Art in Knokke, Belgium. The exhibition brings together artists from different generations, nationalities and disciplines around the idea of ‘(Almost) Nothingness’. The show doesn’t refer to the philosophical thought that denies meaning and value to our existence but wants to reveal – on the contrary – the value of seemingly minimalistic realisations.

If it’s not meant to last, then it’s Performance / VITRINE BASEL

23 February till the 19 May 2019

Tim features in this group exhibition  alongside Paul age Boutros, Sophie Jung, Clare Kenny, Hannah Lees, Wil Murray, and Rafal Zajko. The exhibition examines a diverse group of works through the lens of performance by bringing together a group of works that utilise a broad range of materials and processes.

Tim’s work ‘Further Provocations’, comprises 45 phrases, each periodically painted onto the gallery wall before being covered over and replaced with a new line of text. First shown at TATE Modern in London, this work will be presented for the second time at VITRINE, Basel. Like urban graffiti or changing billboard texts, these words are somewhat transient – seen one day, replaced, covered or partly covered over the next, in a process that allows residual traces of the ongoing work to accumulate in place.

Preview Friday 22 February 2019, 6 – 8pm

Go With The Flow / Swim Against The Tide / Camberwell Space, London

7 March – 29 March

A selection of Tim’s Fight Posters series (2012) will be shown at Camberwell Place from the 7 – 29 March 2019. The exhibition presents contemporary artworks that explore the power and economy of language to explain, coerce and subvert.

Artists in the exhibition include: Tim Etchells, Kay Rosen, Mark Titchner and Claire Undy. The show also takes the full text of Tim’s LED piece from last year With/Against as it’s title.
