About the Collection
From the collection Folio, created in response to works by Shakespeare by Royal College of Art Printmaking students, staff and invited artists to celebrate the Royal Shakespeare Company’s fiftieth birthday. These prints were originally displayed during a celebrated exhibition by the same name in 2011. The prints reflect the act of performing and making theatre, and how the works of Shakespeare are researched and received by a generation fluent in digital media. All proceeds from sales go towards supporting future students at the Royal College of Art.
