“In an immediate sense I’m fascinated with the way that in the real context of the city graffiti, or the slogan t-shirt, or the overheard sentence can have that very vivid and very problematic sort of presence. You don’t quite know what to do with that information. They’re sort of mysterious.”

“What’s the opposite of nostalgia? I ask that question because Tim Etchell’s stories take me back to a time and place I thought I’d forgotten – but I really wouldn’t want to go back there.”

As a founding gallery, with over a year in development and an exclusive in FT Weekend, we are delighted to announce a new project Performance Exchange. Happening in July 2020 – with Director Rose Lejeune and partner founding galleries ARCADE, Seventeen and VITRINE – Performance Exchange is a dispersed performance project across commercial galleries in London, some of which will also be hosting performances from international galleries.
Highlighting the work done by commercial galleries to support multi-disciplinary and performance practice, Performance Exchange will create new forms of support for collecting performance art through a three day programme of presentations combined with detailed acquisition information for each work on an innovative digital platform. It will also create cross-sector dialogue on expanding collections through an Acquisitions Fund which will support three UK regional museums to each collect a new work.
VITRINE will present Tim Etchells in the first edition of Performance Exchange (July 2020)
“A series of cautionary tales for our digital age, Endland is comical and brutal, set in strangely familiar locations that at times seem like Thatcher-era Northern towns under military rule or post-Brexit council estates after a Farage party bender. … These grotesque stories are close to the bone, and help get close to the heart of the times we are living in.”
Tim Etchells will be releasing a new book of short stories titled ‘Endland’ published by And Other Stories on the 19 November 2019. A pre-launch event will be held Drama Studios, Sheffield on 26 October, 3-4pm. The actual launch will be held on Wednesday 27 November at Vout o Renees, London, 6pm-onwards.
