Trespassers Welcome Exhibition

Trespassers Welcome is an invitation to enter, explore and share in a world that is ordinarily off limits, out of bounds or out of sight, forgotten, hidden or removed from our daily meanderings.



Behind locked doors, in darkened subway tunnels, out the window of your train carriage and in the drains beneath your feet, exists a world of wonder and bemusement rarely glimpsed and less often contemplated.

Inhabitants and actors here are numerous and diverse; from DIY artists to birdwatchers, skateboarders to train spotters, squatters to freight hoppers. The activities of - and productions by - these sub cultures and fringe dwellers is the inspirational basis of Trespassers Welcome.

In this space, viewers are encouraged to question conventional notions of the ways in which society attributes significance to space and place, from the perspective that the definition of our existence is largely determined by the way in which we perceive both its function and its significance.

In short, this exhibition is a both a celebration and tribute to outsiders.

About the Artist
First exhibiting at the National Gallery of Victoria in a show opened by Howard Arkley when he was 16, Timothy L has since painted schools in Cambodia, squats in Barcelona, Brisbane’s own Flipside Circus and most recently the main stage at Valley Fiesta 2011.

A Melbourne native, he has both written and photographed for - as well featured in - major news and sports publications such as the The Age, Beat Magazine and Slam Skateboarding.


Migrating north to Brisbane three years ago, Trespassers Welcome is the premiere of Timothy L’s works to date, a select retrospective of his life as a journalist, visual artist and fringe dweller.
