London - Exhibition

Serpent and Shadow

The Royal Academy of Arts

16 Aug 201810 Oct 2018

The collective show Serpent and Shadow groups together historic objects from the RA collection and works by the RA Schools current students and graduates to reflect upon the contrast between visibility and obscurity.

The exhibition explores the dependency of the obscure, the secretive, the monstrous and the parasitical upon visibility, display, control and order.
