"At some point in the early 2000s I noticed I was occasionally, mysteriously, receiving messages from artist friends who would thank me for seeing their gallery shows in New York. While not having been to the city in quite a long while, I wondered what was this? Imposter? Prankster?"

-T.H., May 2024

Who is Tim Hawkinson?


Did the artist who has had major exhibitions at the Getty, LACMA, and the Whitney open a gallery? Did the gallerist Tim Hawkinson have a not-so-secret art making career for decades? Is there a Tim Hawkinson who is also an astronaut? I heard there was a Tim Hawkinson getting an MFA in Maine? Is there truth to the rumor about a Tim Hawkinson running a bakery in Des Moines?


Who is it we see in these portrait paintings? Is that what Tim Hawkinson really looks like? How old is Tim Hawkinson? Is he really that handsome? How many Tim Hawkinsons are we talking about here? Do you have any proof? Can I see some identification and paperwork? Does any international authority keep track of these things, or do we just have a real collective problem with all these Tim Hawkinson(s) running rampant?


Who is even writing all this?


Will this exhibition offer any answers?


Please come to find out.
