Artist-Led Hot 100 (version ii)

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.
