Exhibition – Future Archive

17 September 2019 to 1 October 2019 | 11am – 5pm

20 September 2019 | 6pm – 9pm

Battersea and Dyson Gallery

This exhibition offers the chance to see how a group of RCA students, staff and alumni are exploring the construction of the RCA's new flagship campus in Battersea, designed by Herzog & de Meuron. 

Future Archive uses the construction site in Battersea as a location for field-study in order to create paintings, photographs, texts, performances and experimental responses.

The exhibition brings to the fore unexpected and under-represented visual narratives related to themes of physical labour and masculinity, technology and materiality as well as the visualisation of latency and duration of the architectural process.

The exhibition is curated by Agata Kik (MA Curating Contemporary Art, 2018) and designed by Emily Schofield (MA Graphic Design, 2020). Participating artists and contributors include David Barreiro (MA Photography, 2019), Sam Creasey (MA Painting, 2020), Andrew Culloo (MA Fashion, 2020), Bakhtawer Haider (MA Graphic Design, 2020), Eleni Han (MPhil Architecture), Adam Hines-Green (MA Sculpture, 2018), Lucy Holt (MA Writing 2020), Rut Blees Luxemburg, Claire Felicity Miller (PhD Textiles), Simone Mudde (MA Photography, 2018) , Magda Tritto (MA Graphic Design, 2020), Diego Valente (MRes Fine Art, 2019) and Simon Ward (MA Photography, 2007).
