Adjaye, Arad and Kapoor artworks on the cheap at RCA Secret

  • Comment

RCA Secret is an annual contemporary art exhibition and sale consisting of around 2,500 original postcard-sized artworks, made and donated by professionals - plus up-and-coming students from the Royal College of Art

The cards are all sold to the public in a huge sale on 21 November, with every postcard costing £40, regardless of whether it has been made by a famous name or a young art student.

Over 600 artists have donated work to the event so far, including Grayson Perry, Julian Opie, Yoko Ono, Anish Kapoor, Cornelia Parker, Christo & Jeanne-Claude, Mary Fedden, Maggi Hambling, Bruce McLean, former Stone Roses guitarist John Squire, photographers David Bailey and Richard Young. Animator Nick Park, architect David Adjaye, designers Ron Arad, Milton Glaser, Andrzej Jackowski, Margaret Calvert, as well as fashion designers Sir Paul Smith, Manolo Blahnik, Andrew Fionda and Erdem have also made cards. Many leading American artists have also contributed this year, including Bill Viola, Lawrence Weiner, John Baldessari and Alex Katz.

Postcard contributions have been delayed in reaching the College this year due to the Royal Mail postal strike.
