  • Getting here

    We are at 197 Piccadilly London W1J 9LL between Piccadilly and Jermyn Street, about 200 yards from Piccadilly Circus.

  • An exhibition of new work by Suleman Aqeel Khilji, Alex Margo Arden, Gusty Ferro, Rahima Gambo, Esther Gamsu, Charlotte Guerard, Rosa Klerkx, Robert O‘Leary, Bishwadhan Rai and James Sibley

    Tenfold is the first group exhibition by Royal Academy Schools’ 2025 cohort, marking the end of a year of growth and accumulation and the start of a new year at the Academy. Installed in and around the church are new works by ten second year students at the Royal Academy. The students have spent the last few months in the Church and its grounds, contemplating the site as a space for community, growth and support. The installation of new works brings the long shared history of the Royal Academy and St James’s Piccadilly to the forefront, opening up a space for new collaborations and dialogues.

    The Royal Academy Schools offers a 3-year postgraduate programme in contemporary fine art for up to 17 artists each year. The course is aimed at artists who want to develop their practice through exposure to ideas and constructive critique, dialogue with a diversity of voices and access to specialist workshops.
