    Foreground: Jessica Harrison, RSA Open Exhibition 2014


    The RSA Annual Exhibition is the most extensive annual presentation of contemporary art and architecture in Scotland.


    A mainstay of our calendar since its inception 197 years ago, the exhibition has evolved over the years, providing a platform for Scottish art and architecture alongside international artists, often including topical or political elements, to give an uncensored, independent voice to artists.
