RSBA Annual Show

The art term "contemporary", meaning by a living artist, has become so debased as to imply rubbish, the sort of tripe that wins the Turner Prize. So the Royal Society of British Artists had a problem when describing the content of its forthcoming Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London. It plumped for "contemporary representational", which is a hell of a mouthful, but I understand what it's trying to get across. The show will again feature a selection of outstanding work by A-level students from around the country, in association with NADFAS and the Dover Federation for the Arts. Above is a detail from Chris Myers' It’s in him and it got to come out. The show opens on 29 February, admission £2.50 adults, £1.50 silver surfers. Click the title link for details.
