First thing on a grey Monday morning in January the RCA launched ’GenerationRCA’ at its Kensington Gore building - famously designed in the ‘1960s brutalist style’ by RCA tutors Hugh Casson, Cadbury Brown and Robert Goodden… and tweeted the question ‘What makes the RCA so special???’
The RCA Student annual Xmas Fayre gets bigger and better each year. This year was no exception: more than 50 students displayed very buyable products - perfect for Xmas gifts. Amongst the stalls run by current students, there was a sprinkling of graduates from previous years - everyone was helping to raise funds for the College Student fund as well as earning some personal pocket money. Products ranged from the novelty fun to more seriously crafted goods.
An exhibition of lens-based works is being organised by AND at ‘eventSpace’ during December and January. The artists invited to take part in this project have used the lens in their work, contributed to AND Journal of Art & Art Education or shown work in AND eventSpace gallery.
We propose there is a creative void between static art and continuous art. The subject area is the transition between static works (painting, sculpture,..) and continuous works (performance, dance, film, music,..)

An invitation to take part in RCA Society’s “Sensory City”
On the last Friday every month except May and December the V&A is open late. The event usually has a theme, which highlights a part of the V&A’s vast collection or focusses on a specific aspect. One month the theme was water, and last month it was circus skills. Whatever the theme it’s a brilliant excuse to wander around the V&A to see their wonderful artefacts and at the same time enjoy the ‘party-like’ atmosphere enhanced with cocktails and music.
