People who have saved this event:



The exhibition in the newly opened Dyson Building's gallery brings together the 17 works acquired for the painting collection form 2009-11 as part of the Outset Acquisitions Fund. Presented as a group of works, the exhibition reveals the range of practices and approach over the last three years. The fund, which allowed the RCA to acquire works by graduates, was the first initiative of its kind for the collection - which is primarily comprised of gifts and works left by students. Alongside the paintings, drawings, photography and installations will be archival display showing documents relating to key moments in the collection's history, placing these works and the Acquisitions Fund itself, in a wider artistic, historical and institutional context.
