This autumn we are delighted to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the RSA John Kinross Scholarships.

Since the inception of the scholarship, the RSA has enabled over 400 emerging artists and architects to travel to Florence for a period of research and development and has distributed over £666,500 in funds. Over 800 art and architectural works have been deposited by scholars in the RSA’s collections. From its modest beginnings, the scholarship has grown to be the most important travelling scholarship the RSA has ever administered, and the current guidelines continue to reflect the spirit with which it was originally envisioned.

To mark this significant milestone, Mary Bourne RSA, herself a Kinross Scholar in the 1980s, and Fergus Purdie RSA, will curate an exhibition in the RSA Lower Galleries, celebrating the full 40 years of the scholarship.

The exhibition will feature collections and contemporary works from 20 artists and architects, five from each decade, and a curation showing the variety within the Kinross Scholarship collection. The exhibition will explore the lasting impact this opportunity has had on the careers of those involved and highlight the diverse and multi-faceted practices the award has helped to support.
