School of Fine Art Work-in-Progress Show: Open House
17 January 2015 to 18 January 2015 | 10am 5.30pm
The WIP (Work-in-progress) Shows provide an opportunity for first-year students at the Royal College of Art to show their work at the start of their second term, to learn more about each other’s work, and to begin to gauge a broader range of responses to their ongoing practice.
This year, in Fine Art, rather than transporting the students’ work into the gallery spaces in Kensington for two weeks, tutors have asked them to show their work over a weekend, within their studios, workshops and seminar rooms – within the spaces in which their work has been made and debated. They are encouraged also to experiment with a range of approaches towards display and to make as few assumptions as possible about how their work should be exhibited.
Those visiting the Work-in-progress Shows will have the opportunity to see the students’ work at a range of stages of development, and to gain a better understanding of the processes our students employ and the spaces in which they make.
