ARTZU Gallery presents KIDS by Tim Garner

ARTZU Gallery presents KIDS by Tim Garner


A cutting edge exhibition by Manchester artist, Tim Garner which runs alongside Manchester International Festival 2017 (MIF).

Following on from his landmark commission for Morson Group’s Ged Mason, OBE, Tim Garner turns to Manchester’s KIDS for inspiration.  His new work offers a unique insight into the highs and lows of growing up in an urban environment.  City streets create a rich playground for the imagination and a map for all the possibilities that lie ahead.

Simon Says, Tim Garner.

Inspired by the background of political turmoil Tim Garner asks, “can we provide a city which really supports the originality, ingenuity and imagination of our young people?”

As the leading urban artist of the day, it will no doubt make for thought-provoking and memorable viewing.

Garner’s powerful depictions of urban living in the city streets of his hometown are highly sort after. Rarely placing figurative forms in his work, in these newly commissioned pieces he turns anthropologist placing children in his urban landscape.

The juxtaposition of youth and heritage provides new perspectives on local landmarks forcing the viewer to re-evaluate the relevance of the landscape for future generations.

Buildings shape society, society shapes architecture and this fascinating history is captured in Tim Garner’s layered artwork.
