London

NOW CLOSED

The Royal Academy of Arts will open its new campus in May 2018 as part of the celebrations of its 250th anniversary year. Following a transformational redevelopment, designed by Sir David Chipperfield, the new RA will continue to share historic treasures from its collection, the work of its Royal Academicians, alongside its exhibitions programme. One of the most significant outcomes of the redevelopment is the link between Burlington House and Burlington Gardens; providing more space for the RA’s exhibition programme. The new Royal Academy Collection Gallery will present ‘The Making of an Artist: The Great Tradition’ highlighting works from the RA Collection. Other exhibitions include ‘Tacita Dean: Landscape’ (19 May–12 August 2018) which will inaugurate the new Gabrielle Jungels-Winkler Galleries in Burlington Gardens, and ‘Invisible Landscapes’ (19 May 2018–March 2019), which will open the Architecture Studio within the Dorfman Senate Rooms. Find out more about the new RA from their website.
