Attention London Art Lovers, there are but two days remaining to catch ‘Premiums: Interim Projects‘ at the Royal Academy of Arts. Don’t miss the opportunity to see what the RA second-year post-grads are up to, and maybe even discover a new favourite emerging artist while in the building. There are no doubt quite a few careers I’ll be keeping an eye on from this show!
It’s quite exciting to experience an exhibition that marks the beginning of an artists’ journey — to feel you were in a way with them for that crucial first step.
The variety of medium in the exhibition is sublime, from painting and drawing, to photography, video and sculpture.
Normally not a fan of video work, I am always thrilled to come across exceptions to this rule, which I definitely did in Molly Palmer‘s ‘In Addition to Everything Real‘. You’ll find this piece in Room 1 of the exhibition — as the saying goes, it starts you off with a bang!
To be honest, I did not find all of the works as fresh and exciting as the above, but there is no doubt some wonderful and thought provoking art on view.
Here are a few of my favourites.
‘Premiums: Interim Projects‘ is on view at the Royal Academy of Arts until 11 March, 2015; 6 Burlington Gardens, London W1S 3ET; Open Daily 10AM – 6PM (10PM Fridays); Admission: FREE
