Royal Academy Wrap

The Royal Academy will be opened as never before, creating a revitalised destination for artists and the public in the very heart of London, completed in time for the 250th anniversary in 2018. 

Royal Academician Yinka Shonibare, MBE, has created an art work for the scaffolding wrap which will shroud the façade of Burlington Gardens for the next two years while the building work is underway. The art work consists of a digital print on PVC mesh and brings together over 150 photographs that span the Royal Academy’s 248-year history.
