THE ISLAND OF BAD ART [AND OTHER NEW DISCOVERIES]
Prints from the Royal Academy of Arts
An exhibition of original prints and multiples created at the Royal Academy Schools that simultaneously celebrates its contemporary impact and its 250th year anniversary as the UK’s longest surviving Art School. It features works by many of its leading Royal Academicians [including Turner prize winner Grayson Perry, Rebecca Salter, Christopher LeBrun, , Cathie Pilkington, George Baselitz , Bob and Roberta Smith and previous Turner prize nominees Tracey Emin , Richard Wilson and Alison wilding] alongside recent students and graduates [ including Prem Sahib, Hannah Perry, Charlie Billingham , and Suzy Moxhay ] .
The Royal Academy schools held a particular place of affection for JMW Turner who entered the Schools as a 14-year-old student in 1789 and frequently taught there during his long association with the RA. For thirty years he held the position of Professor of Perspective between 1807 -1837 . In this period he found much inspiration in his travels to Margate.
All works are for sale. Profits from sales support the RA Schools student bursary fund.
