Half a Self-Portrait Face Covering, Bob & Roberta Smith RA

Featuring Hello by Bob & Roberta Smith RA and available exclusively from the RA Shop, this face covering is an artful way to express yourself in public.

"I am rather a shy and misanthropic person. My Hello mask helps stop dispersal of the virus and replaces pointless greetings. After the virus fades from memory, I hope my ‘Hello’ masks continue to be worn as a way of avoiding unnecessary conversation."
- Bob & Roberta Smith

We look forward to seeing (half of) you on your next visit to the Royal Academy!

Product story

Half a Self-Portrait Face Coverings

In collaboration with Ron Arad RA and invited Royal Academicians, we have developed five unique face coverings. Exclusive to the RA Shop, these face coverings are a fresh take on self-portraiture!

Self-portraiture has always been a balance between representing and imagining oneself but in this project the invited artists were only given half a face to respond to. The resulting creations are playful and full of personailty.

 

Not suitable for children. Suitable for adults only.
