The Red Mansion Anniversary Art Prize Exhibition 2020

Weston Studio, RA Schools

18—25 Mar 2020

Seven heads of the UK’s top art schools present new work made following a residency in China.

Please note: this exhibition was due to open on 18 March 2020, the day after the Royal Academy shut its doors due to the COVID-19 lockdown.

The Red Mansion Foundation was set up 20 years ago to promote cultural exchange between Great Britain and China. Each year the Foundation invites post graduate art students from 7 of the UK’s most prestigious art colleges to travel to China. The works inspired by their travels are then exhibited at the participating colleges. To celebrate its twentieth anniversary The Red Mansion decided to reverse the roles and invite the heads of these art colleges to travel to China during the summer of 2019. The works in this virtual show are the fruits of their journeys to different parts of the country.

Featured artists: Eliza Bonham Carter (Royal Academy Schools), Anthony Gardner (The Ruskin School of Art), David Mabb, (Goldsmiths College), Martin Newth (Chelsea College of Arts), Kieren Reed (Slade School of Fine Art), Alex Schady (Central Saint Martins) and Jo Stockham (Royal College of Art).

18 March — 25 March 2020

Saturday – Thursday 10am – 6pm
Friday 10am – 10pm
