7 October 2021 | The site will launch 7 October and run for a year.

HIDDEN is an annual exhibition celebrating the creative work of the technical and non academic staff at the Royal College of Art. These staff members have a wealth of knowledge and skill and are a hidden talent among the college. HIDDEN is an opportunity to showcase some of their most innovative creative work, which in previous years, has included jewellery and furniture design, painting and sculptures, handmade bespoke cars and interactive virtual reality work.

This years HIDDEN exhibition will take place online due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions. This unique year has given us all an opportunity to work in different ways – creating work in a new environment, using different methods, developing a new practice or perhaps not making any work at all. HIDDEN promises to celebrate artwork made during a challenging time for many, as we adapted to a new way of living, working and making. On the 7th October 2021 we will launch a website revealing these artworks with supported exhibition graphics designed by Ian Gabb.

HIDDEN is a unique opportunity to see the range of work produced by the talented technical staff that are the backbone and support for many of the students at the RCA. HIDDEN continues to be a highlight in the Royal College of Art’s annual calendar of events.
