Discover graduate work by Royal College of Art students from around the world.

Work in Progress 2022

For the second time in its history, the Royal College of Art’s annual presentation of Work in Progress takes place online as a digital platform from 28 January to 4 February 2022 at, accompanied by a programme of digital events.

Reflecting our students’ adaptation to a rapidly changing world, the pieces shown in this year’s Work in Progress speak to the politics of presenting in the digital sphere with three overarching themes underpinning this year’s show. 

There are Virtual Lovers, asking to what extent can a work’s primary existence be within the virtual world? 

There are Hybrid Narratives – the types of creative work that straddle the boundaries of the computational and the corporeal. 

And works that are Captured – asking of their viewers, how do we perceive the documentation of work intended to be viewed offline? 

These themes are reflected throughout the four Schools of the College, and are explored through a programme of events which you can book now. Work in Progress 2022 will go live with our students’ work on Friday 28 January.

Wherever you are, there are multiple ways to engage with the world’s most talented emerging artists and designers – and the thinking, practices and processes informing their work in progress.
