Appearing on the bridge high above Booth Street East, a new neon work reveals this structural link between University of Manchester buildings in a fresh light. Created in dialogue with the unique landscape of the Oxford Road Corridor Etchells’ work is a playful intervention that asks us to think about language, the city and the present moment.

This is a major new commission by Tim Etchells, an artist, writer and leader of world-renowned performance group Forced Entertainment. With work exhibited in cities across the globe, including Berlin, London and Vancouver, Etchells’ practice spans performance, video, photography, text projects, installation and fiction.

As part of the Festival of Ideas strand, Tim Etchells joins Sabina Sabolović, director of Kunsthalle Vienna and part of the Zagreb-based curatorial collective What, How & for Whom (WHW), for an online conversation on 23 October from 4-5pm.
