College updates its website

The college has updated the RCA Secret website with some text written by Honour Bayes.

We’re back! Did you miss us? In March 2013 RCA Secret returns to the Royal College of Art’s Dyson Building.
In 2011, RCA Secret celebrated its eighteenth birthday as a unique exhibition and sale of over 2,500 original postcard-sized artworks made by professional artists, designers and illustrators, including alumni and postgraduate students at the Royal College of Art.

We took a year out while the Royal College of Art celebrated its 175th Anniversary in 2012, but in 2013 RCA Secret returns for our twentieth year as one of London’s most popular art sales.

Forthcoming Exhibition & Sale
We’re far too excited to wait until the autumn, so the new RCA Secret will be revealed on Thursday 14 March 2013, with the exhibition running up until the day of the Sale on Saturday 23 March. This new spring in our step not only sees a change in dates, but a move to the Royal College of Art’s landmark development — the Dyson Building, 1 Hester Road, SW11 4AN.

The Secret
Ever wondered if you could spot an Emin at 20 paces? How about a Grayson Perry? Each postcard in RCA Secret is signed only on the back, so collectors won’t know the identity of the artists until they have made their purchases.

We’re giving you nine days to check out this eclectic collection and then for one day only the cards will be sold to support the RCA Fine Art Student Award Fund. With generous contributions of new work from hundreds of leading international artists and designers, RCA Secret continues to help emerging artists at a formative stage in their careers. So whether you walk away with a famous name or not, you’ll be buying a bit of history and contributing to the future.

Each postcard costs £45 and a maximum of four cards may be purchased per person. Postcards are only available to purchase in person at the Sale. You must have an RCA Secret Collector's Number to purchase a card at RCA Secret 2013. Register HERE to get one
