The Royal Society of Sculptors annual Summer Exhibition returns, featuring a curated selection of works from members and fellows.

The 2021 Summer Exhibition has been curated by Sigrid Kirk inspired by the possibility of a new exuberant era for the arts. Drawing a parallel between the 1920s and 2020s, Sigrid Kirk looks to the years following World War I and the 1918 flu pandemic as inspiration for a manic flight into sociability.

The Roaring Twenties, also known as the ‘Années folles’ (crazy years), were marked by social, artistic and cultural dynamism. There was a sense of novelty and a break with tradition where everything seemed possible. Artists, poets and writers adopted an increasingly experimental and innovative approach to their work leading to significant movements such as Dada, Surrealism, Expressionism and Art Deco. For 2021 members have been invited to showcase something of this ‘joie de vivre’ in their work and see what possibilities arise.
