See new work by graduating RA Schools students in their historic studios, which have recently reopened after major renovation.

At the heart of the Royal Academy's mission since its foundation, the RA Schools provides a postgraduate programme in contemporary art that is free for all participating students. Each year the RA Schools Show is an opportunity to see bold new forms and ideas that result from three years of intense study.

Displayed throughout the RA Schools’ Studios and Weston Studio, the exhibition presents a wide range of practice from moving image, installation, to sculpture, painting, and print.

This year's exhibition includes paintings that hauntingly restage images from an Italian past, a large-scale stitched newsprint object evoking the British landscape and the human body, and a moving image installation which creates an absurd post-apocalyptic world inhabited by goths and businessmen.

This is the first opportunity to visit the newly renovated RA Schools by David Chipperfield Architects.

Recent graduates include Michael Armitage RA, Sung Tieu, Rachel Jones, Adham Faramawy, Rebecca Ackroyd, Sebastian Jefford, Issy Wood, Jala Wahid, Roland Carline, Mary Ramsden, Prem Sahib, Lewis Hammond, Peter Linde Busk, Kira Freije and Turner Prize nominated Lynette Yiadom-Boakye and Pio Abad.
