GB2347: Thursday 28 April: Exhibition Opening at the Royal Over-Seas League
THURSDAY 28 APRIL (evening): RBA RISING STARS at the ROYAL OVER-SEAS LEAGUE (free event, but booking through Eventbrite required)
Please join me for the private view of a new exhibition at the Royal Over-Seas League (ROSL - https://www.rosl.org.uk ) on Thursday 28 April, starting at 6pm and ending at 8pm.
The Exhibition: This exhibition is produced in partnership with the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA - https://royalsocietyofbritishartists.org.uk ). It showcases the extraordinary talent of 40 artists shortlisted for RBA Rome Scholarship 2022 and maps the trajectory of what is yet to come in contemporary art practice. Amongst other awards for the finalists is a one-month residency at Sala Uno, an arts centre in Rome. RBA's collaboration with ROSL, which hosts the work of young artists aged 35 and under, began in 2017 and acknowledges the depth of emerging talent present across the UK.

Transport and Venue Details: The address of the venue is Royal Over-Seas League, Over-Seas House, 6 Park Place, off St. James's Street, SW1A 1LR. For a map, click on http://tinyurl.com/3jq4clt . The nearest tube station is Green Park (Jubilee, Victoria and Piccadilly Lines, Zone 1), but Piccadilly Circus (Bakerloo and Piccadilly Lines) is also within easy walking distance. I will meet people inside the exhibition, and not at a station. I aim to arrive a few minutes after it opens.
Reserving your Place(s): Booking through Eventbrite is required. I suggest you book as soon as possible while places remain. Go to https://www.rosl.org.uk/events/event/1438-rba-rising-stars-private-view , scroll down to the bottom of the page, select the number of places you require and then click on "Register". You may book for up to 6 people, but to prevent ticket wastage, PLEASE do not request more tickets than you are sure to use. If you want to invite others who are not yet sure, I suggest you ask them to book for themselves. (This is important, because with Eventbrite it is not possible to reduce the number of tickets you require without cancelling your entire booking and then rebooking.) After booking, you should receive your e-tickets by return. Please note that you will not have to show your tickets at the venue, so there is no need to print them. As long as you have successfully booked, your names will be on the guest list.
