16 March - 22 April 2012
Ambika P3 Galleries - University of Westminster, London

Keith was active as an RCA Society committee member and as a fellow of Royal College gave us special insight. We miss his company and the moments when he burst into song and jazz numbers.
This giant relief is also in the round. The ambiguity is intended as a response to the clear but complex subject matter. The subject is the late painter Lucian Freud, my father.

After a successful international series of exhibitions over the past 5 decades Sydney King, now part of Cambridge's artist community, is showing his paintings at Cambridge University's Clare Hall Gallery. Opening reception
As part of the continuing dialogue around art and design practice the RCA Society organised an event which brought together twenty different 'works of art' for presentation and discussion. The invitation stated that the works should be submitted with a "bullish" valuation and publicly presented by their "creator" or "representative". Through the individual presentations the work's true value would be revealed and subsequently accepted or rejected by the gathered audience of 'experts'.
