Premiums Interim Projects, Royal Academy, Burlington Gardens, London W1, until 11th March 2015
This is a great chance to see the work of seventeen nascent artists who are postgraduate students at the RA Schools. An RA programme which incidentally is the only free three-year postgraduate course in the UK. As Eileen Cooper RA, Keeper of the Royal Academy, said, “I’m very much looking forward to Premiums, an exhibition which marks the halfway point of the students’ time at the Royal Academy Schools. The work on show will be diverse, both in range of media and intention. In the galleries of the Royal Academy, we are used to seeing work that is already known and one of the special things in Premiums is that the work on show is being tested outside the artists’ studios for the first time. This is the visitors’ opportunity to form their own opinion.”
You should definitely go along and see the work of these students who are: Rhys Coren, Rian Coughlan, Elliot Dodd, Alana Francis, Kira Freije, Gery Georgieva, Anna Hughes, Frank Kent, Neill Kidgell, Jack Killick, Molly Palmer, Anna Paterson, Robin Seir, Rafal Topolewski, Claire Undy, Wanda Wieser and Tom Worsfold.
Good luck to them!
