Hidden 2020

7 March 2020 to 8 March 2020 | 12pm – 6pm

Kensington, Courtyard Galleries


This March, the Royal College of Art presents Hidden, an exhibition showcasing work from the College's technical and non-academic staff. From jewellery and textile design to painting, sculpture, photography and interactive virtual realities, this exhibition will showcase the talent and technical skills that are sometimes unseen by others inside and outside of the College. 

The RCA's technical staff have a wealth of skills-based knowledge which is put to use on a daily basis supporting students across the College. The exhibition will also reveal the everyday creativity of administrative staff, demonstrating the beneficial impact of the arts which can help to alleviate stress both within and outside of work.

As part of the learning environment, the RCA provides specialist facilities across traditional workshops and cutting-edge digital technologies such as rapid prototyping, CNC milling and laser-scanning. Technicians play a vital role at the College, supporting students in mastering the required skills for their particular aesthetic and approach. As Hidden highlights, many of these technicians are highly skilled specialists in both traditional crafts such as glass, metalwork, jewellery, screen printing, or letterpress, as well as expert innovators with newer technologies.
