Summer Exhibition @ RA

The title of this year’s summer exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts is ‘Raw‘. The rawness in the majority of the works -I am not an expert in Art anyway- probably is based on the expressed desire of the artists to expose themselves deeply and unconditionally. Certainly I need to pay a second visit at the RA. But just after my first visit on Saturday a ‘raw’ event attracted my attention:

Just outside the main entrance of the Academy, on Piccadilly Road several naked bikers were riding proudly of themselves and the signs-protests they carried! (most of them against pollution, in defence of ecology, some from the British Naturism etc.).

Trying to make sense of ‘Raw’ on my way out of the exhibition, the ‘naked protest’, ‘naked bodies’, ‘naked smiles’ the naked rides -like the ones in the following photo taken by my surprised me – were exactly what ignited my further thoughts about ‘Raw’!!!!

A ... raw perspective?
