RA Summer Exhibition

Posted by Sheri

Last week we had the pleasure of heading to the RA for their vibrant Summer Exhibition. Not only did we get to spend the afternoon gazing over the hundreds of beautiful artworks (1,100 to be exact), but we where lucky enough to join Clare Taylor, Head of the Keepers House, for a drink and an introduction to the history of the exhibition in the very classy Academicians’ Room. Here’s a bit of what we learned about the exhibition: the exhibition has been running since 1768, one year after the Royal Academy was founded, and each year around 1,000 works are handpicked from as many as 12,000 entries – I think we would all love to be a fly on the wall in those judging sessions.

The exhibition offers everything from paintings to sculpture and installations and is a perfect way to spend a summer’s afternoon. From the moment you walk up the bright and bold staircase, an installation designed by Jim Lambie made entirely of coloured vinyl tape, you know you are in for a real visual treat. The exhibition is on until 16 August 2015 and we would highly recommend going to check it out!

Time for a change in direction

A little update from us at Fivefootsix. 

The fast pace of running Fivefootsix hasn’t given us much time to stop and properly think about the future. However, celebrating our tenth anniversary this year presented an opportunity to both reflect and to look forward. And, after a hugely exciting journey, we’ve taken the decision to bring our current agency operations to a close, allowing us to end things on a high, and turn our attentions to new challenges ahead.

Although we’re sad to say goodbye to Fivefootsix, we are also incredibly proud of what we’ve been able to achieve in that time, and the calibre of clients we’ve worked with. Brands like BBC Children in Need, Ben & Jerry’s, Birley, UEFA and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), as well as our own projects, like The Art of Ping Pong, which will continue to develop.

Most importantly, the last ten years would not have been possible without the support of the hugely talented Fivefootsix team, both past and present.

Thanks to everyone who’s joined us on the journey and been part of that success. Hopefully we’ll have the chance to work with many of you again in the future.

If you can, please join us for some drinks at The Art of Ping Pong 2015 launch event, on November 5th at 7pm at the KK Outlet in Hoxton.
