Artwork description

Bob and Roberta Smith RA composites images from his polemical film Art Party, to brilliantly satirise Conservative Education Secretary Michael Gove’s policies on art education.

The print is deliberately 'low tech' and gritty in appearance, and incorporates pictures of contemporary artists including Cornelia Parker RA, Jeremy Deller, and Richard Wentworth. Bob and Roberta Smith's iconic text painting Letter to Michael Gove was shown in the Academy's 2014 Summer Exhibition.


All proceeds from the sale of RA Editions prints go directly to support the RA Schools.
