The Premiums exhibition showcases some of the best contemporary work being
produced by young artists today. Highlighting the diverse work produced
by second year students at the Royal Academy Schools, the exhibition provides
an opportunity to view painting, sculpture and photography, by developing,
aspiring artists mid-way through their studies.
RA Schools offer students the opportunity to develop their ideas and working
practices on a unique three-year postgraduate course. Attracting students
from across the UK and Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas,
the RA Schools has established an international reputation, and is renowned
for its creativity and originality. With a total of 60 places available,
the Schools offer students a wide range of benefits including access to
tutorials and lectures given by leading figures in the art world, and
links with a wide range of contemporary artists, including Royal Academicians.
Premiums offers an insight into the contemporary art scene of tomorrow,
and provides an invaluable opportunity to view and buy work by some of
the most talented art students in the country.
Premiums will be sponsored in 2003 by Walker Morris, one of the leading
