Conceptual, Performance, Photography, Curating, Theoretical

Tim Brennan (PhD) has exhibited internationally over the last 20 years. His practice is not limited to any one media and has incorporated performance, object making, curating and teaching. Over the last 2 decades he has developed a methodology based on the guided walk and conversation as art, which he refers to as the manoeuvre. This activity is built on academic research to form new imaginative reflections upon the ways in which we ‘do history’. He has been described as one of the most important practitioners to contribute to the social and political role of contemporary art. Brennan is Head of Arts & Design at the University of Sunderland.
