Congratulations to RACC student Vanessa Ramasawmy for winning the Victoria and Albert Museum Prize (for best use of V&A Collections) with her fantastic work 'Lea’s Tales'.
The works on display include textiles, fashion and jewellery through to sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, painting, and – new for 2016 – digital media; and draw from an even broader range of artefacts for inspiration.
Vanessa was competing against an initial pool of over 350 entries from across the UK and was judged by an esteemed panel of V&A curators.
Emma jane Avery, Director of Learning and Visitor Experience at the V&A says: “Inspired by… is now in its seventeenth year and I am delighted that the Victoria and Albert Museum continues to be a part [of it]. “The exhibition always presents an excellent, high-quality snapshot of creative practice amongst adult learners and this year is no exception.”
Inspired by… is open to the public from 17 May – 17 June 2016 at Morley Gallery, 61 Westminster Bridge Road, London SE1 7HT and entry is free. Opening times vary. For further information visit ww.morleycollege.ac.uk/gallery or call 020 7450 1826.
