The RSA Annual Exhibition is a focal point of the RSA programme, showcasing work from RSA Academicians the length and breadth of Scotland. Now in its 193rd year, it continues to provide a platform for contemporary painting, sculpture, film, printmaking, photography and installation, alongside work by some of the country’s leading architects.


In 2016 the curated aspect explored the ideas and work about what HOME might mean, from twelve distinguished architect Academicians and their guests, including prominent Scottish and international architects. Everyone should have a home, and everyone should have some ideas about how they ideally would like to live. HOME was curated by the exhibition convenor, Robin Webster RSA, and presented innovative houses which have been completed and working ideas for, as yet, unrealised projects. In addition to showing examples of beautiful houses and imaginative ideas that may whet the ambition of those aspiring to something better, the exhibition also considered how homes may be provided for those who can afford very little, and what these might be like. HOME was part of the Scottish Government’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design. 


Deputy Convenor Adrian Wiszniewski RSA also invited a number of artists and designers whose work also relates to the theme of HOME.
