Hew Locke

How to present yourself and your work


Deptford X
Unit A, 9 Brookmill Road SE8 4HL

Join artist Hew Locke for an advice session on how to best present yourself and your work when applying for artistic opportunities.

Participants are asked to bring their portfolio or example of a recent application to share an discuss with the group. You will also need to share your website or instagram account if it focusses on your artwork.


Hew Locke was born in Edinburgh in 1959, lived in Guyana for his formative years, returning to the UK in 1980, eventually attending the RCA. His fusing of historic sources with current political or cultural concerns, and the merging of influences from The Caribbean and London, lead to richly textured, vibrant pieces that stand on a crossroad of histories, cultures and media.  His public artworks include the memorial marking 800 years of Magna Carta, situated at Runnymede.  His recent solo exhibition at Ikon Gallery in Birmingham ‘Here’s the Thing’ received rave reviews, and tours on to the USA.
