Supporting Artists since 1972

Chris Timms

Goldsmiths MFA Award

Chris Timms is an artist working across sound and performance. His practice explores stuttering and disfluency as forms of estrangement, interruption, and multiplicity through embodied speech. Chris has been informed by an ongoing exploration and collection of output produced by figures who have spoken with a disfluency or stutter.

Chris was selected for the 2017/18 Goldsmiths MFA Award by artist David Batchelor, Lea O’Loughlin (Head of Residencies & Awards, Acme) and Charlie Coffey (Residencies & Awards Programme Manager, Acme) from a shortlist of six MFA graduate artists from Goldsmiths, University of London.

Upon completing his award in September 2018, Chris presented BOUND at PEER alongside fellow early career programme artists Dominic Dispirito, Alex Urie, and James Tailor.

Goldsmiths MFA Award

The Goldsmiths MFA Award is a partnership between Acme, Goldsmiths, University of London and Jane Hamlyn. Aiming to provide a bridge between art school and professional practice, the award includes a generous bursary, rent-free studio space and a mentoring programme. Recipients of Acme’s Early Career Awards Programme work from shared studios in order to encourage an environment of peer support and critical dialogue.
