Joanne Tatham and Tom O’Sullivan

Joanne Tatham (b. 1971, West Yorkshire) and Tom O’Sullivan (b. 1967, Norfolk) have worked together since 1995 after they met whilst studying the MFA at the Glasgow School of Art. Tatham and O’Sullivan’s artworks often function as displacements or diversions which encompass sculpture, painting, architecture, photography, performance, literature, institutional critique and curation. They produce work that questions the role of art, what is expected and how it is understood and interpreted.

They have exhibited at; Tramway, Glasgow; Kunsthaus Glarus, Switzerland; Studio Voltaire, London; and Eastside Projects, Birmingham. They represented Scotland at the 51st Venice Biennale in 2005 and were shortlisted for the Northern Art Prize in 2013. Tatham and O’Sullivan currently live and work between Newcastle upon Tyne, London and Glasgow, they are represented by The Modern Institute.
