Tim Brennan is an independent practitioner who has exhibited inter¬nationally for 20 years. He is engaged in the notion of discursive practice through performance, photography, sculpture, writing, publication, drawing, curating and teaching. Since 1987, he has produced a corpus of work which has included the politics of the gallery and beyond. Over the last decade he has developed a methodology based on walking and conversation as art (which he refers to as the manoeuvre). This work exists in a region between traditions of performance art, loco-description, history and journeying, and surfaces as an exponential mode of radical travel-writing. Brennan recently completed an AHRB (Arts and Humanities Research Board) three year fellowship at the University of Sunderland (UK) through which he engaged in an interrogation of devolu¬tion and the condition of British unity through the optic of Northumbrian history. Brennan is Programme Leader, MA Curating at the University of Sunderland.
