6 Million Ways Of Getting Into The Arts - Session 1: Visual Art

The first in a series of six 3-hour long events featuring nationally and internationally renowned creative people and organisations from a selection of the most dynamic creative practices including acting, animation, art, performance and writing. Through the presentation of case studies the speakers will highlight some of the many diverse routes to developing careers in these exciting and creative disciplines.

Internationally known visual artist Hew Locke and curator and writer Alessandro Vincentelli discuss their work and the routes their careers have taken.

Hew Locke spent his formative years (1966-1980) in Guyana before returning to the UK to complete an MA in sculpture at the Royal College of Art (1994). He has exhibited extensively with works included in the British Art Show 6, the 2011 Folkestone Triennial and the 54th Venice Biennale (2010). In 2004 Locke was commissioned by the BBC to produce a new work, King Creole, was installed on facade of Tate Britain & at BBC New Media Village, and in 2010 his piece Sikandar was shortlisted for the Fourth Plinth, Trafalgar Square, London. In 2012 he will be the lead Artist/Curator for Deptford X. Locke currently lives and works in London.

Alessandro Vincentelli is Curator of Exhibitions & Research BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead, where he has worked for the past 8 years. During this time he developed and curated solo exhibitions with many internationally renowned artists. In 2011 he worked as co-curator of the Turner Prize when BALTIC hosted the prize. He has also worked as a Curator at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham and as a freelance curator & photography publisher.
