Royal Academy Bronze Exhibition opens

BRONZE, an exhibition presented by the Royal Academy of Arts and designed by Stanton Williams, will be on show from 15th September to 9th December.

The exhibition celebrates the remarkable historical, geographical and stylistic range of Bronze as an enduring medium, bringing together works from the earliest times to the present in a thematic arrangement. With works spanning 5,000 years, no such cross-cultural exhibition on this scale has ever been attempted. The exhibition features over 150 of the finest bronzes from Asia, Africa and Europe and will include important discoveries as well as archaeological excavations. Many of the pieces have never been seen in the UK.

Paul Williams, director at Stanton Williams explains: “Bronze is a very special exhibition to be involved with. Having worked with the material on several of our architectural projects, we have developed a passion for its qualities and respect for its diversity. Our work on exhibitions remains an integral part of our studio, with the detailed use of space, material and light informing our large scale projects and enhancing our creative sense of space.”
