The Royal College of Art’s (RCA) annually-anticipated fundraiser resumes from 1 December, presenting the opportunity to purchase artwork by some of the most internationally acclaimed artists. All proceeds go towards the RCA Fund supporting future generations of RCA students and their careers in the creative industries.
If you’re unfamiliar with its format, the secret auction works through the display of over 1,800 artworks whose makers are unknown to the viewer until they donate £60 for their work, “putting supporters’ taste and knowledge to the test”. The variety of contributors includes the Turner Prize-winning Grayson Perry, as well as film director Ridley Scott. Not to mention Sir Paul Smith the fashion designer, video artist Jeremy Deller and many more.
Images of all the artworks up for auction will be realised online from 9 am on 29 November, 24 hours before the exhibition opens to the public. And if anyone wishes to purchase an artwork, they are available from 1 to 3 December.
