Spring term at RCA concluded with a group show at StudioRCA with my MRes coursemates. We called our group exhibition, “Pass-the-Parcel” and we just had our opening on 26 April. As you can see from the poster (designed by yours truly!), it’s jam packed with para-activities all the way to the last day:We started installing from 23 April.
