Enjoy three landmark exhibitions away from the crowds at a special edition of our Friends private views – all in support of our fundraising appeal Make Your Mark.

Enjoy Matisse in the Studio, Jasper Johns and Dalí / Duchamp without the crowds and become immersed in the exhibitions through live music, with themed food available to purchase. For a taste of what to expect, have a look at the latest Friends private view images.

Dalí / Duchamp Take another look at two artistic giants: father of conceptual art Marcel Duchamp, and larger-than-life Surrealist Salvador Dalí. This is the first exhibition to throw light on their surprising relationship and its influence on the work of both artists.

Jasper Johns Regarded as one of the most important artists of the 20th century, Jasper Johns has remained central to American contemporary art since his arrival in New York in the 1950s.

Matisse in the Studio Step into the studio of Henri Matisse, brimming with the artist’s treasured objects. Focusing exclusively on their important role in his work for the first time, we will reveal how this eclectic collection took on new life in his transcendent art.

Explore our galleries until midnight with live music and themed food available for purchase.

Please be aware that this event will be filmed and photographed for use by the Royal Academy in digital and printed marketing. If you do not wish to be filmed or photographed, please contact friends.events@royalacademy.org.uk.
