The Tour of All Tours

The Tour of All Tours sees Aitchison assume the role of conceptual tour guide offering a guided tour of guided tours: a critical and sideways tour of the tourism industry itself and of all the varied forms of tours on offer in any given location.

Aitchison reforms the guided tour into an engaging and truly unique medium for art”

China Quick Fix

This is a photographic research project that has evolved over a year and which essentially consists of images and descriptions of quick-fixes of numerous varieties, many of which feature on the blog China Quick Fix. The solo exhibition will feature an accompanying text in English and Chinese.

The opening is on 23rd May and the exhibition will show for one week, viewings by appointment.

Psy-Ops Sound Lab

This is a new collaborative project that has recently been awarded its first funding by the Centre for Contemporary Theatre, Birkbeck College University of London. The objective of POSL is to conduct experiments in the use of sound to influence people and then give talks / concerts showing and enacting these experiments. This will be initially conducted in Berlin and London in Spring/Summer 2015 with the collaboration of Elo Masing and James Dunn.


There is an extended interview with Bill on the Talking Walking website.
