Saturday, November 26, the Holy Biscuit Community and Morphe Arts will come together for an arts day in Newcastle, surrounding two significant exhibitions: the Turner Prize at the BALTIC Center for Contemporary Art and the Young Artists of the Year Award, held at the Biscuit Factory/THB.
At 2:00pm, we will listen to a lecture by video artist, Hilary Lloyd at the BALTIC, the last in a series of lectures by the four short-listed candidates (Lloyd, Karla Black, Martin Boyce, and George Shaw).
Lloyd was nominated for the Prize for her January exhibition at London’s acclaimed Raven Row, an exhibition three years in the making, where each of her five video works occupied its own room in the gallery.
Lloyd was born in Halifax, Yorkshire in 1964, and currently lives and works in London. She studied Fine Art at Newcastle Polytechnic, now Northumbria University, and graduated in 1987. She (presumably) returns to Newcastle, as opening festivities for the Turner Prize Exhibition begin this week.
