There's something lurking in the shadows that might be interesting

15 March 2019 to 22 March 2019 | 9.30am – 5.30pm

23 March 2019 to 23 March 2019 | 1pm – 6pm

Battersea, Dyson Building

RCA School of Arts & Humanities MPhil/PhD Research Exhibition

There's something lurking in the shadows that might be interesting features the most wide-ranging enquiries of 39 MPhil and PhD students from the RCA’s School of Arts & Humanities. From 15–23 March, the Dyson Gallery and its surroundings will be inhabited by researches in different stages and forms – bringing the artistic process in contact with the external world. Showcasing artworks in various media: from painting to sound, moving image, sculpture and performance, the audience will witness new-born ideas and intentions, reimagined experimentations and grounded practices.

Questioning the dissonant nature of displaying a wide range of artistic processes in the same space, There's something lurking in the shadows that might be interesting highlights the commonalities belonging to the figure of the artist as researcher, and the subjective reactions which can occur when presenting the product of an investigation to wider audiences. Speaking to the search in research, peering into the shadows in order to expose something to light: the exhibition is a call to the overlooked, the subtle, and the raw.
