This year, the Royal College of Art’s annual summer show will include work by the greatest number of graduating students in the College’s 175-year history. Show RCA 2012 is to take place simultaneously in six buildings across the College’s two campuses in Battersea and Kensington.
Show RCA 2012 offers visitors – some 40,000 last year – a unique opportunity to experience the very best of emerging contemporary art and design practice. Nearly 500 art and design postgraduate students from more than 40 countries will exhibit work of exceptional quality, imagination and technical skill.The exhibitions are free of charge to the public, with much of the work for sale or commission – ranging from paintings to prints, glassware to jewellery and furniture to textiles. Buyers have the opportunity to invest right at the beginning of an artist or designer’s career, with 15 per cent of sales going towards the Royal College of Art Student Fund.
Open to the public: 20 June – 1 July (closed 29 June) 10.00am – 5.30pm daily; late opening to 8pm Saturday 23, Wednesday 27 and Saturday 30 June
