Stay at Clifton Hotels this month and catch the last mesmerizing moments of The Royal West of England Academy’s Autumn Exhibition!
As Bristol’s first art gallery the RWA, established in 1844, is keeping pace, if not beating its contemporaries with the constant arrival of new, controversial displays of art.
The Autumn Exhibition loudly exalts this expectation.
Host to some of the most respected pioneers of their art form, the RWA is exhilarated to present the Autumn Exhibition this October.
Amongst those on display is the work of the late Louise Bourgeois and Tracey Emin, Bridget Riley and Michael Kidner.
Bourgeois and Emin, two founders of confessional art, display their unique exhibit; ‘Do Not Abandon Me.’ This includes 16 drawings which explore themes of identity, sexuality and the fear of loss and abandonment.
In addition to the controversial work of Bourgeois and Emin, is the exciting reunion of Bridget Riley and Michael Kidner. Both pioneers of optical art Riley and Kidner exhibit their unique interpretation of the world and theories around them through their own translation of visual language. What is especially exciting, however, is the appearance of such defined artists together after their first correlation in New York in 1965.
Please note; different exhibitions end on different dates, and some of the art may be unsuitable for children.
