Tomorrow’s Tigers

The Academicians’ Room, Burlington House, Royal Academy of Arts

12 Sep — 1 Jan 2020

Originally devised and curated by Artwise for WWF, ‘Tomorrow’s Tigers’ features limited-edition art rugs by internationally renowned artists, including Royal Academicians Gary Hume, Rose Wylie, Anish Kapoor and Kiki Smith.

Woven by hand in the hills of northern India using the finest natural wools and silks, each artist rug is unique. Incorporating innovative weaving techniques with specialist hand-dyeing, these pieces push the boundaries of weaving as an art-form meeting the vision of each participating artist.

The Tomorrow’s Tigers project was originally curated to raise awareness and funds to support WWF Tx2 goal – a global commitment to double tiger numbers in the wild by 2022. These ten works show how art can help positively shape our relationship to nature and our environment.

Featured artists: Kiki Smith Hon RA, Gary Hume RA, Rose Wylie RA, Anish Kapoor RA, Francesco Clemente, Bernard Frize, Reena Saini Kallat, Maya Lin, Harland Miller and Raqib Shaw.
