Artist returns to Royal Academy for Summer Exhibition
A student from the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) has been selected to show her work at the Royal Academy of Arts' Summer Exhibition for a second successive year.
Max Kimber, who is in the final year of a BA (Hons) Fine Art at UCA Canterbury, will show a bronze sculpture called Long and Long (Before that time) in the prestigious exhibition at Burlington House from 4 June to 12 August.
Last year, she was selected to show her experimental short film Cusp, which won numerous national student film awards in 2011.
Max, who is originally from Rochester, said: "I feel very lucky to have my sculpture selected for the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition.
"I'm still totally shocked to be asked to show my work in such a prestigious show two year's running - I can hardly believe it, especially as I've been selected with two such disparate mediums.
"I hope that by having both film and sculpture accepted, it means that it's my ideas that are appreciated and not the mediums I choose."
Established in 1769, the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition is the largest open contemporary art exhibition in the world, drawing together a wide range of new and recent work by established, unknown and emerging artists.
