Poet, musician and visual artist from New York and currently living in North London, Jared Louche is the quintessential highly productive, multi-faceted artist.
His poetry and stories can be heard all over London, from the BBC World Service to GLR, from the Globe Theatre to the Barbican and the British Council, from the Garage and the Astoria to Soho Theatre, Queen Elizabeth Hall and rock festival stages.
Jared has toured all over the world with both of his bands as well as in the role of poet and storyteller. He has recorded over a dozen albums with three different bands and unleashed two books entitled A Handbook and Unplugged Memories. In 2006 he finished soundtracking a collection of stories and songs with Mark Spybey (CAN and other sonic experimentalists).
From 1981 to 1990 Jared worked with sculptural arts group Art Attack designing and installing guerrilla exhibits in countless disused spaces, abandoned houses and art galleries across the US and Europe as well as showing at such prestigious events as Documenta in Germany and Collide in Marseille.
He facilitates creative writing and performance workshops and has worked for years, and to great acclaim, in countless Nurseries, Primary and Secondary Schools, Universities, Colleges, Prisons, Art Galleries, Museums, Libraries, YOIs, PRUs and Hospitals. He often works in collaboration with painters, photographers and musicians. He has created, planned and facilitated hundreds of long-term residencies with organisations such as The Barbican Arts Centre, The National Gallery Museum, Tate Modern and Tate Britain Museums, Guys and St Thomas’ Hospital, The Wellcome Collection, The Whitechapel Art Gallery, Evelina Children’s Hospital, Royal London Hospital, The British Council, Creative Partnerships, Bow Arts Trust, East Side Educational Trust and many others.
