'Premiums: Interim Projects' features the work of artists at the midpoint of their studies at the RA Schools. This annual exhibition provides an opportunity to see up-to-the-minute work by emerging artists at a time when their practice is still developing.
This year’s Premiums: Interim Projects reaches all corners of Burlington House. Innovative and surprising, Premiums reflects the diversity of practice and perspectives at the RA Schools, with work ranging from photography, painting and sculpture to video, installation and performance.
The RA Schools is a contemporary school of fine art at the heart of the Royal Academy. Former students include rising stars like Turner Prize nominee Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Eddie Peake, Catherine Story and Matthew Darbyshire, as well as historic greats such as J. M. W. Turner, William Blake and John Everett Millais. Almost 250 years after its foundation, today it continues to be the only art school in Britain to offer a free, three-year postgraduate programme to promising artists.
Exhibiting artists: Roland Carline, Mark Corfield-Moore, Ben Doherty, Lucy Evetts, Charlie Fegan, Gina Fischli, Thomas Langley, Deborah Olakigbe, Will Pham, Josh Pye, Marianne Thoermer, Sung Tieu and Issy Wood.
...we are used to seeing work that is already known…one of the special things in Premiums is that the work on show is being tested outside the artists’ studios for the first time.
Eileen Cooper RA, Keeper of the RA Schools
