The Royal Society of Sculptors dynamic summer programme opens today
The Royal Society of Sculptors summer programme takes place at Dora House in South Kensington from 28 June – 19 September 2021. The annual Summer Exhibition returns featuring a selection of works from members and fellows curated by Sigrid Kirk inspired by the possibility of a new exuberant era for the arts, drawing a parallel between the 1920s and 2020s.
A new temporary site-specific work by Sophie Kemp has been commissioned to coincide with the Summer Exhibition. ‘More Than You Might Expect’ (2021) will be on display in the sculpture terrace at Dora House. Inspired by iced gem biscuits, Kemp’s new work ‘More Than You Might Expect’ is a playful response to Dora House as a jewel-like and architecturally embellished form.
More than 200 miniature sculptures will also be on display as part of the 10gram Challenge, a lockdown activity where members were invited to produce a small scale sculpture from a 10 gram piece of wax to be cast in bronze.
