Royal College of Art to show in park

London's Royal College of Art has announced plans to hold its Summer Show in a 120x25m tent in Kensington Gardens this summer.

Called The Great Exhibition 2007, the show comes 150 years after the original Great Exhibition of 1857, which gave birth to the cultural and educational institutions in South Kensington, including the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Albert Hall.

1857 was also the year that the RCA moved to its South Kensington home.
The show will take place from 15-28 June in the gardens across the road from the RCA, close to the site of the 1857 exhibition.

It will feature postgraduate work from the fine art, applied art, design, architecture, humanities, and fashion and textiles courses.

The show is sponsored by the Conran Foundation.
