This month we are saying happy birthday to the Royal Academy of Arts, which has reached the grand old age of 250. To celebrate, the arts centre and gallery has embarked on a bold redevelopment to make it larger, providing space for more free art displays and educational areas. Previosly comprising two seperate buildings, Burlington House and Burlington Gardens, both are now joined together by a 'cultural campus'.
The results of all this hard work will be revelead when Tacita Dean:Landscape becomes the first show inside the new Gabrielle Jungels-Winkler Galleries, from 19th May.
The English artist, who has made a name for herself in the video art world, celebrates landscapes she has witnessed across the globe with pieces designed especially for this particular gallery space. The highlight is the new film Antigone, a mixture of poerty and acting filmed across multiple locations, combined into a cinematographic image.
