Kevin Hunt has created a new Artist-Led Hot 100 to celebrate some of the most exciting artist-led activity that has emerged during the past four years, since his original Hot 100 long-list was produced in Summer 2013. Focusing on projects that are "by artists, for artists", the list highlights artist-led initiatives around the UK that are visibly active right now.
Kevin Hunt is an artist, curator and lecturer based in Liverpool. He was a director of The Royal Standard, an artist-led gallery, studios and social workspace in the city (2007-11), co-founded CAVE, an artist-led art fair that coincided with the opening of Liverpool Biennial (2012) and co-curated MODEL, a flexible, experimental research based platform for artist-led activity programmed to run concurrently with Liverpool Biennial (2014). In the summer of 2017 he will launch fs, a free school running for 12 months in Liverpool.
