Good Times, Bad Times, All Times Get Over

Ikon presents a selection of work as part of the International Print Biennale 2011. Good Times, Bad Times, All Times Get Over is centred on the vignettes of British wood engraver, artist and naturalist Thomas Bewick (1753-1828), and these tiny scenes of everyday rural life are clearly influenced by his childhood in the North East. They provide an invaluable insight into social history while also demonstrating the artist’s imagination and wit.

Taking its title from Bewick’s depiction of a gravestone inscribed with the words “Good Times, Bad Times, All Times Get Over”, this exhibition includes 24 ‘tale-pieces’ alongside the work of four contemporary artists: Graham Gussin, Swiss duo Lutz and Guggisberg, and Bedwyr Williams.

The International Print Biennale (17 September–19 November 2011) brings together museums and galleries from across the North East to celebrate printmaking from around the world.

Good Times, Bad Times, All Times Get Over is supported by Pro Helvetia.
