GCSE Remove London Art Gallery Trip
GCSE Remove Art students travelled to London on Thursday 19th June to visit the largest open submission exhibition in the world, at the Royal Academy of Arts Summer show.
A smorgasbord of paintings, printmaking, photography, film, drawing and sculpture, students marveled at the inspiring range of Art displayed. This was a great opportunity for our students to collect references for their upcoming second coursework project. Further, they also used their exhibition catalogues to try to distinguish the high profile big money professional artists from the unknown and the upcoming.
En-route to the National Gallery for the afternoon focus, the group had the superb opportunity to visit the commercial, Pace Gallery, where senior director Polly Gaer (a Marlburian parent), spoke passionately about contemporary Romanian artist Adrian Ghenie and gave inside knowledge of what it is like to work in the Art world.
Finally we crossed Piccadilly Circus, passing numerous street performers before stepping into the soothing ambience of the National Gallery where many of the greatest painters of our time are represented.
