Born in the UK, Rebecca Locke is based in New York City which has proved formative in the development of her installation art, film, photographic, sound and performance-based artwork. She is a graduate of Goldsmiths, University of London, and has studied at the International Center of Photography and the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She is a visiting fellow at the Centre for Urban and Community Research (CUCR), Goldsmiths, University of London and an inaugural member of the Association of Urban Photographers.
The City to Sea Project developed from Rebecca's practice, and in 2013 collaborated with Magnum Photos for a workshop series and screened exhibition at Urban Encounters, Tate Britain. Rebecca exhibits internationally and recent exhibitions include the Lab Film Festival, London, Visual Urbanism: Perspectives on Contemporary Research, The British Library, London, the Festival de la Imagen, Manizales, Columbia and the first Bienal de Fotografía, Lima, Peru, which featured the artist's video and sound series Lugares qui fui.
The artist is currently working on a new film, E pluribus unum, and a self-portrait based series 'we are paper, we are celluloid, we are digital' exploring narrative identity and female role models.
