Since 2003, RM has ended the year by bringing together a shop full of art multiples, miniatures, catalogues, handicrafts, food and beverages.

This year we thought we would change the format slightly — focusing on perishable art: objects with a shelf-life, art multiples with use-by dates, self-destructing sculptures, a slowly disappearing inventory of stock…

NB: ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE SALE OF WORK GO DIRECTLY BACK TO THE CONTRIBUTING ARTISTS – this is not a RM fundraiser, but a chance to put some money back into the pockets of some of the artists who we love and support.
