Royal Over-Seas League helps support young artists globally in their development though residencies, competitions and awards. In the past 18 months alone, ROSL has exhibited 231 artworks made by 128 artists from 27 countries.

The story for International as an exhibition is to showcase a selection of artists through a survey of the past decade and raise awareness of the important work that Royal Over-Seas League has done in establishing many artists far and wide. The roots of its current visual arts programme originate from the launch of the ROSL Annual Exhibition in 1984, indeed the longest serving visual arts purchase prize was established just one year later and is still awarded annually to a graduating student in MA Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art, gifted to the winner of the Annual Music Competition Overseas Awards. ROSL PHOTO is a biennial Photography Competition, established in 2019 which is completely free to enter and a wonderful opportunity to discover some new global photographic talent with ยฃ3,500 of prize money (applications for ROSL PHOTO 23 opens on 20 March, see for details).

Since 2000, ROSL has been committed to artist-in-residence opportunities for international artists to present and promote their work in the UK for the first time. Over the past five years we have selected two participants annually to develop their practice during a two-month stay across The Art House, Wakefield and ROSL, London each autumn. In 2021 we were also fortunate to receive a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund for our first Royal Over-Seas League Artist-in-Residence working both at Over-Seas House and in partnership with the Griffin Schools Trust, providing artist workshops relating to heritage and identity for Year 5 pupils (8-10 years old) at Riverley Primary School in Leyton, East London.

The exhibition is on view at Royal Over-Seas League until 16 April, for further information contact [email protected]
