RCA SecretThe RCA Secret show, held at the college's Dyson Building in Battersea, is that rarest of artistic events - a chance to get your hands on a piece of genuine art by a bona fide artist for a mere £50. The way it works is simple. You go to one of the viewing days, look at the postcards which have been sent in by all sorts of people (famous artists, celebrities, artists in training and talented but not well known artists), then return on the sale day and purchase the ones you liked - for £50 a pop. The catch is that you can't tell who did the postcard until after you've shelled out your dosh, so you might come home with a Hirst original or, well... you might not. It's an opportunity to flex your artistic knowledge, pick up a bargain and invest in the future of the RCA (because it's all for charity, folks). So if you reckon you can tell your Opie from your Emin, head down to the RCA (or view online) and see what you can pick up but you will need to register in advance to buy. If you're dead set on a particular postcard, get there before the doors open at 8am when the buying starts. If you're a little more relaxed, leave it until later; the queue usually disappears by around midday.
