Dr Adrian Locke, Exhibitions Curator for the Royal Academy of Arts, tells us about the ten years he spent studying at the University of Essex. He discusses the focus of his research, as well as what drew him to, and still fascinates him about, Latin American art. According to Adrian, there is simply no better place to study Latin American art in the UK than at the University of Essex, and in this video, he explains why.
Adrian has just launched Mexico: A Revolution in Art, 1910–1940 at the Royal Academy: royalacademy.org.uk/exhibitions/mexico/
