The Northern School of Art – Industry Speaker: Bobby Benjamin, Artist & Curator


Bobby Benjamin is an artist, exhibition curator and co-founder of Middlesbroughs Pineapple Black art gallery and also art collective Picasso Baby. Their work is created in a mix of medias and often reflects on class and masculine indentity.

Our creative programme of live events focusses on employability, professional skills and practice and HE awareness – all within a CREATIVE context.

Our talks cover a range of disciplines and are delivered by industry speakers, creative lecturers and graduates from across the whole creative sector.

These sessions can serve as a useful resource for schools and colleges (or anyone with an interest in creative development and progression). Usually lasting around 45 mins during a Wednesday afternoon.

Participants can tap in remotely via a teams link, which will be sent to anyone that books a place through eventbrite.

Our previous speakers have helped to inspire the next generation of creatives, sharing their own creative journey, insights into their practice, demonstrations of their work as well as providing general advice to anyone looking to follow a similar path.
