Tim Kerr & Friends – Our Schedule Is Change
Space 1026 is proud to present Our Schedule Is Change, the latest exhibition of work by Austin-based artist Tim Kerr. For the past three decades, Kerr has been a fixture of the DIY (Do It Yourself) art scene, pursuing both visual and musical endeavors. With this latest body of work, completed during his recent residency at Providence, Rhode Island’s AS220 Kerr continues to explore themes of social justice, people’s history, and community.
In keeping with his DIY ethos of collaboration and inclusion, Kerr has invited friends he has made over years of traveling to exhibit alongside him at Space 1026. The cast includes Jim Houser (Philadelphia, PA), Asa Osborne (Baltimore, MD) Paul “The Baltimore Glassman” Darmafall (Baltimore, MD), Russ Pope (Orange County, CA), Merrilee Challiss (Birmingham, AL), Clint Woodside (LA/Philadelphia), Bill Daniel (Orange Van), Rich Jacobs (Oakland, CA), and a few surprises to be sure.
We invite you to join us for an opening reception with the artists on Friday, November 4th at Space 1026 from 7 – 10 pm. We are excited to announce a special opening night music performance by Zomes (Asa Osborne of Lungfish/Pupils).
Tim Kerr earned his degree in painting and photography at the University of Texas in Austin, studying under the photographer Garry Winogrand. Kerr’s artwork has been shown internationally including exhibits at PS1 in New York, 96 Gillespie in London, Slowboy Gallery in Germany, and Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago. He was recently completed residencies at Void Gallery in Derry, Northern Ireland and the above mentioned AS220 in Providence.
Kerr became involved musically and artistically with the early stages of the D.I.Y. punk/hardcore/self expression movement. He was a member of the notably the punk/funk hardcore band The Big Boys, a band credited for creating the genre “skate-rock” in the early 80’s. He also recorded with bands for lables such as Touch & Go, Estrus, Sympathy For The Record Industry, In The Red, Sub Pop, and Kill Rock Stars. In 1996 Tim was inducted into the Texas Music Hall of Fame by popular vote which he says he is still honored, humbled, and confused by.
