The Royal College of Art's annual graduate summer shows take place as four separate exhibitions this year across the College's two campuses in Kensington and Battersea.
With the Conran Foundation's support, over 400 art and design postgraduate students will exhibit work of exceptional quality, imagination and technical skill, in a series of public exhibitions that is one of the highpoints in the art and design calendar.
Royal College of Art graduate shows offer visitors - some 40,000 of them came through the College's doors last year - a unique opportunity to experience the very best of emerging contemporary art and design practice.
"The RCA fires on all cylinders this summer - both south and north of the river," said Dr Paul Thompson, Rector of the RCA. "I'm greatly looking forward to my first Shows as Rector of the College, having been an avid visitor in previous years."
Graduates will join a select roll call of RCA alumni that includes some of the world's most acclaimed artists and designers, such as David Hockney, Ross Lovegrove, Philip Treacy, David Adjaye, Tracey Emin, Jake and Dinos Chapman, James Dyson, Ridley Scott and Peter Blake.
All exhibitions are free to the public (except SHOW FASHION), with much of the work - ranging from paintings to prints, glassware to jewellery, and furniture to textiles - for sale or commission.
