The Royal Scottish Academy presents Latitudes, an exhibition celebrating the far-reaching scope of recent work by the winners of RSA awards. Every year, the Royal Scottish Academy distributes over £100,000 to artists to support excellence in the visual arts in Scotland. With awards for artists at all stages of their careers, the RSA’s Opportunities programme offers scholarships, bursaries and grants to help artists throughout Scotland forge successful practices from their student years through to graduation and beyond.

Latitudes includes new bodies of work from winners of the 2019 RSA William Littlejohn AwardRSA David Michie Travel Award and RSA Barns-Graham Travel Award. Also on view are works by several winners of the RSA Pandemic Award 2020, a monetary award created to assist artists with the continuation of their practices during the Covid-19 crisis. The RSA awarded a total of £30,000 through this award, with 12 artists receiving £2,500 to research, develop and create new work in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The online viewing room includes extensive video, image-based and written content to bring the exhibition into the homes of our visitors and supporters.
