Timothy Taylor Menu
Substance, 18 July14 August 2015, London

Continuing its Philip Guston season, Timothy Taylor is pleased to announce the group exhibition Substance, which takes as its point of departure the “meat and potatoes” of Guston’s layered, visceral paintings – coined by Mark Leckey in his Cinema in the Round (2008) – and then goes on to explore the idea of substance in art from different points of view.

Through an eclectic mix of artists and works, the exhibition’s title and premise also acknowledges the quasi- greatest hits structure of the highly acclaimed Factory Records releases by New Order, Substance (1987) and Joy Division, Substance (1988). By exploring the possibilities of the term, this exhibition brings together a thoughtful compilation of substance art.
