Royal College of Art
Contemporary Art Practice MA exhibition

21-25 July 2021 at Cromwell Place, London

Spread across six galleries within Cromwell Place, the Royal College of Art presents a satellite event for their annual MA Contemporary Art Practice Degree Show, comprising work from their 2021 cohort of students.

Curated by Linda Rocco, the 2021 RCA MA Contemporary Art Practice Graduate Show will take place from 21 – 25 July. A graduate exhibition is the collision of multiple sites of knowledge production, experimentation and processes coming together. The RCA 2021 cohort share their delight that the time spent researching, making, discussing and developing, can now be experienced in a physical form.

The 2021 Royal College of Art MA Contemporary Art Practice Graduate Show will offer visitors a unique opportunity to experience the very best of emerging contemporary art. An extensive range of media will be on view and available for sale, from photography, print, sculpture, video, performance art, multimedia, interdisciplinary art, ceramics, textiles – all using a wide range of materials and subject matter that push against the expectations of what contemporary art is and can be.

Where I’m Coming From

3rd to 30th August 2020 Curated by _inventory platform (Linda Rocco & Rhine Bernardino).
Supported by the Yinka Shonibare Foundation and the Ministry of Culture, Taiwan.

Where I’m Coming From is a month-long digital residency dedicated to four languages that are present and spoken by a significant portion of the migrant community actively working and contributing to the British economy and yet highly invisible: Filipino, Taiwanese, Yoruba and Berber languages. The programme aims to open up conversations around the exclusivity of language in accessing the production and consumption of arts and culture, alongside considering the wider cultural presence of underrepresented artists and groups in international art debates.

The project orients towards increasing opportunities for new ways of working collaboratively, rethinking the impact and role of arts and culture in a pandemic and post-pandemic scenario. It emphasises with careful thought the vested importance of highlighting diversity and multiculturalism in such unique times. Along with this, the project also experiments on how to relocate as well as adapt concepts from one milieu to another – from a physical IRL space as the programme was initially conceived, to its current translation into the digital domain.

Where I’m Coming From  directly engages with community groups by inviting  them to lead food sessions each Sunday, allowing the general audience to learn about each cultural group’s cuisine to possibly reproduce and engage in their own homes.

Artists: Aderemi Adegbite, Taiwo Aiyedogbon, Jelili Atiku, Rhine Bernardino, Kuan-Yu Chen, Aki Pao-Chen Chiu, Yun Ling Chen, Fatima Mazmouz, Gouri Mounir, Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussens, Aïcha El Beloui, Vanessa Scully

There’s Something Lurking in the Shadows that Might be Interesting

15th – 23rd March 2019 at Dyson Gallery (London, UK) RCA School of Arts and Humanities Research Exhibition

There’s something lurking in the shadows that might be interesting features the most wide-ranging enquiries of 39 MPhil and PhD students from the RCA’s School of Arts and Humanities. From the 15th until the 23rd of March, the Dyson Gallery and its surroundings will be inhabited by researches in different stages and forms – bringing the artistic process in contact with the external world. Showcasing artworks in various media: from painting to sound, moving image, sculpture and performance, the audience will witness new-born ideas and intentions, reimagined experimentations and grounded practices.

Questioning the dissonant nature of displaying a wide range of artistic processes in the same space, There’s something lurking in the shadows that might be interesting highlights the commonalities belonging to the figure of the artist as researcher, and the subjective reactions which can occur when presenting the product of an investigation to wider audiences. Speaking to the search in research, peering into the shadows in order to expose something to light: the exhibition is a call to the overlooked, the subtle, and the raw.

LOST SENSES is a 30 consecutive days programme of live performances and participatory experimentations for kids and adults to experience and enjoy senses, remembering that embodiment is not textual but consumed by a world filled with smells, textures, sights, sounds and tastes. Generating a re-opening of senses exploring otherness, lost and participation, everyday life has been critically tested as a never static reality made of bodies, time and experiences.
