Using the architectural space of Rushgrove House, a listed Georgian mansion in Woolwich, this exhibition aspires to build a bridge between home life and ways of displaying contemporary art. Organised by RCA painting student Byzantia Harlow, in collaboration with some of the curating students, it includes work by students from across the College as well as artworks loaned from private collections. This project will address the contrast between exhibiting in public and private spheres, and looks at the way artworks interact in a historical and domestic environment. The house will be open throughout the weekend with free performances, workshops, debates and film screenings. The house is set in 3.8 acres of land and was recently used as a location for Mike Leigh’s film about the life of painter, JMW Turner.
