The Academicians' Room members breakfast

We invite members of the Academicians’ Room to join us for an exclusive breakfast in the club room and a private view of all three autumn exhibitions: Renzo Piano: The Art of Making Buildings, Oceania and Klimt / Schiele: Drawings from the Albertina Museum, Vienna.

This autumn, we open the doors to three, highly anticipated exhibitions; Renzo Piano: The Art of Making Buildings, Oceania and Klimt / Schiele: Drawings from the Albertina Museum, Vienna.

We invite members of the Academicians’ Room to join us for a special breakfast in the club room and a private view of all three of the exhibitions, away from the crowds.

Renzo Piano: The Art of Making Buildings

From The Shard in London to the Pompidou Centre in Paris, the buildings of Renzo Piano have enriched cities across the globe. This September, we reveal the vision and invention behind his pioneering work, showing how architecture can touch the human spirit.

This illuminating exhibition follows Piano’s career, from the influence of his Genoese heritage and his rise to acclaim alongside friend and collaborator Richard Rogers, to current projects still in the making.

Oceania

Marking 250 years since Cook’s first voyage to the Pacific, we celebrate the dazzling and diverse art of the region of Oceania, from the historic to the contemporary, with over 500 years of art from Rapa Nui to Hawai‘i.

Oceania will bring together around 200 exceptional works from public and private collections worldwide, including feats of navigation, sacred objects honouring gods and ancestors and groundbreaking contemporary art.

Klimt / Schiele: Drawings from the Albertina Museum, Vienna

Experience rare and fragile drawings by Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, offering intimate insights into their artistic relationship and differing creative processes. This extraordinary collaboration with the Albertina Museum in Vienna marks the centenary of both artists’ deaths.

Klimt / Schiele is a unique opportunity to see some of the 20th century’s most important works on paper – among them Klimt’s sketches for his seminal Beethoven Frieze, and unflinching self-portraits by Schiele – which due to their delicacy will not see the light of day again for many years. In around 100 portraits, allegories, landscapes and erotic nudes, prepare to encounter these two icons of early Modernism at their most raw and revealing.

The Royal Academy is an independent charity that relies on the generosity of its members. Thank you for supporting the RA by participating in events from the Academicians’ Room.

This event is open to members of the Academicians’ Room only.
