The exhibition is part of Glasgow International and is Head’s first solo show in Scotland since 1980. It is also the first time the Garment Factory has been used as an exhibition venue. The exhibition will showcase new and recent large-scale digital prints and works on paper.

Since the 1990s Tim Head has developed an innovative body of work focused on an exploration of digital space. Using projections, LCD displays and inkjet prints, Head’s works attempt to articulate 'the digital medium's elusive material substance'. The works that this exploration has produced are surprisingly beautiful, at once visually seductive and conceptually rigorous. Moreover, they represent a continuation of concerns that have preoccupied Head since his earliest exhibitions, an investigation of reality and perception. As Michael Bracewell recently wrote, 'The art of Tim Head has long made articulate the curious yet forcefully real schisms which exist between the techno-materiality of the modern world and our experience of its constitution.'

Tim Head first came to prominence in the early 1970s with a series of ground-breaking installations at the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford (1972) and the Whitechapel Art Gallery (1974) and participation in important group shows including the 8th Paris Biennale, Musee D’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (1973), Arte Inglese Oggi, Palazzo Reale, Milan (1976) and Documenta 6, Kassel (1977). Head represented Great Britain at the Venice Biennial in 1980 and won the John Moores Painting Prize in 1987. From 1971 to 2011 Head was an influential teacher at both Goldsmiths and the Slade in London.

Recent solo exhibitions include Parafin, London (2017, 2014), Modern Art Oxford (2013), Kettle’s Yard, Cambridge (2010) and Huddersfield Art Gallery (2009). Recent important group exhibitions include Pioneers of Pop, Hatton Gallery, Newcastle (2017), Post Pop: East Meets West, Saatchi Gallery, London (2014), Between Spaces, Centro de Arte Moderne, Fundacao Calouste Gulbenkian (2012), The Indiscipline of Painting, Tate St Ives, (2011) and Signs of a Struggle: Photography in the Wake of Post Modernism, V&A, London (2011).
Head’s work is in many important international collections including Tate, London, Arts Council Collection, London, British Museum, London and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York.
