StudioRCA was an exhibition space located on the Riverlight development in the Nine Elms on the South Bank district.
Between 2016–2018, StudioRCA was run by the Royal College of Art as a test-bed and exhibition space for collaborating curators and agencies to engage with public audiences. It was programmed and curated by A- - - Z, an exploratory curatorial platform produced by Anne Duffau.
From October 2018 until August 2019, the Royal College of Art and Wandsworth Council presented a programme of eight co-curated installations in StudioRCA that put the local neighbourhood and community engagement at its heart. We worked closely with local organisations and schools and welcomed over 1700 visitors into StudioRCA through exhibitions and hands-on workshops.
Funded by St James, part of the Berkeley Group, StudioRCA supported the long-term cultural strategy for the Riverlight development, providing one of the area's first new cultural offers within Nine Elms on the South Bank, and contributing to London's wider cultural offer by drawing in the local community, visitors, residents and workers to the area. The partnership was brokered and developed by cultural consultancy Futurecity.
StudioRCA is now closed.
