Arts SU are collaborating with the RA throughout 2017 on their exciting Lates programme and we want your ideas!
RA Lates are themed, immersive nights of creativity, ideas and entertainment, inspired by our exhibitions. Each exhibition has its own special one-off RA Late, where you can witness the Royal Academy magically transformed as we host an ever-changing line-up of curated entertainment.
The eclectic RA Lates programme has included a 9-metre inflatable cosmic installation, themed supper clubs, UV Garden of Eden life-painting, Klezmer dancing, Pollock-inspired paint splattering, gold-leaf makeovers, robotic displays and a cocktail party with ‘Peggy Guggenheim’ – all bringing the world of our exhibitions to life for a unique and unforgettable Saturday night.
The theme for each evening informs all aspects of the event, from dress code to food and drink to set design and all programmed activities.
Taking inspiration from Jasper John’s notable collaborations with Merce Cunningham, John Cage, Andy Warhol and Bruce Nauman, who epitomise the avant-garde art scene through their developments in choreography, composition, performance and art this RA Lates theme will be Manhattan Studio Party.
Celebrate the experimental, avant-garde New York art scene in the ‘60s and ‘70s for this RA Late. Experience a night in Lower Manhattan and discover experimental artist studios, creative activities, talks, film screenings and secret bars, then dance until late to live bands and DJs.
Think fluxus festivals, early conceptual art, experimental compositions, modern dance performances and happenings.
The RA are inviting UAL student proposals for immersive installations, performances, set designs, costumes, activities and experiences that will feature as part of RA Lates: Manhattan Studio Party.
This is a paid opportunity and the event will take place on Saturday 21st October 2017 at the Royal Academy of Arts.
