'Why and How' at the RA

Join us for an informal, drop-in discussion and share your thoughts about our current exhibition ‘Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’.

In these book club-style discussions, we open up the floor for conversation about our latest exhibitions. This month we focus on Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’, the first comprehensive survey of the artist’s work to be held in the UK in 40 years. What do his images of familiar objects, symbols and words mean to you? What do you see in the image of the American flag? Whether you have already seen the exhibition or are planning to visit on the night, we welcome you to come and hear what others think of the show and share your views.

Leading this month’s conversation is Kim Jacobson, an artist educator at the RA who has also worked with museums, universities and schools across the UK. Kim’s own art practice revolves around drawing and painting with charcoal, ink, pastel and graphite. She also teaches studio-based practical art.

Drop in to our cosy lounge, the Belle Shenkman Room, to share your views and hear what others think. The bar will be open next door in the Hugh Casson Room for drinks and snacks, which you are welcome to bring through. To avoid disrupting others we will close the door after 7pm, but latecomers are welcome – just come in and join us.
