MA Degree Shows at the Royal Academy and the Slade

Having been to degree shows in the past we knew what to expect, however, we were not expecting the amount of similar work we encountered especially when it came to painting. At the Slade, we were welcomed by strange circular balls, covered in red material, snaking in and out of the basement windows. Then upon entering the main space, which is perhaps more amazing than some of the art work, with spiral stair cases centered here and there, we were challenged by spooky cacephonic sounds, thus adding the relevant effect necessary for any work to stand out, because of course, we needed that extra stimuli. Having said all this, both the shows at the RA and the Slade were interesting, with a few bits that really stood out (photos below). Unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to jot down specific details about the work but rest assured, any artist having been to either of these institutions, won’t be hard to find.
