New knowledge

Research students from London’s Royal College of Art will unveil an exhibition of their work tomorrow at the institution.

As the college’s PhD and MPhil research students are at the university to test and challenge accepted methodologies and open up new areas of investigation, the exhibition, which is the first of its kind at the RCA, should present some fascinating work.

The exhibition, which covers the work of 40 practitioners from 21 departments of the college, will run until 27 October.

RCA director of research Professor Jeremy Aynsley says, ‘The belief that knowledge can be generated, and questions answered, through analytic scholarship, experimentation and innovative examples of artefacts and designs, underpins our developing research projects and disciplines.’
