Closing of Convocation by the Provost Procession Smoking is not permitted in the auditorium Rector’s Foreword Welcome to Convocation 2014. Today, 13 doctoral students, 4 MPhil and 550 Master’s students graduate from the Royal College of Art, the world’s oldest and most influential art and design university. The class of 2014 comes from some 60 different countries around the world, reflecting the truly global nature of this university.

This year for the first time ever, we are ‘streaming’ Convocation and hope that relatives and friends unable to attend today’s important ceremony will be able to enjoy the proceedings online. For students, you too will be able to witness the event afterwards as today’s recording will remain on our website over the summer months.

Huge congratulations to all of today’s graduands. You have worked hard to achieve this crowning glory, and we very much hope that you will remain close to the College over the many decades to come, remembering this institution with especial affection and pride. We are here to support you in the immediate future, through FuelRCA, and long term, through AlumniRCA. With active chapters of AlumniRCA based in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seoul – and with ambitions to establish alumni networks in other cities around the world – there is no excuse not to stay in touch with old friends, former tutors or alumni, who could help you to establish your practice as an artist, curator or designer. And of course your RCA email account will enable you to keep up to date with events here at the College. All of us wish you every success in your chosen career.

We are proud to be conferring the degree of honorary doctorate on Paola Antonelli, Alber Elbaz and Grayson Perry CBE. Their achievements in the world of art and design exemplify the levels of creative and intellectual achievement to which we, the RCA, aspire.

Finally, after the pressures and exertions of the past term, I wish you all a well-earned rest and an enjoyable summer.

Paul Thompson Rector “Congratulations to all of today’s graduands. You have worked hard to achieve this crowning glory, and we very much hope that you will remain close to the College.” Honorands Honorary Doctor Paola Antonelli Senior Curator of Architecture & Design Director of Research & Development, MoMA Paola Antonelli’s work investigates design’s influence on everyday experience, often including overlooked objects and practices, and combining design, architecture, art, science and technology. In addition to her role as Senior Curator of Architecture and Design at MoMA, Paola was appointed Director of a new Research and Development initiative in 2012. She lectures frequently at high-level global conferences and coordinates cultural discussions at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

A true interdisciplinary, energetic and generous cultural thinker, Paola was recently rated as one of the top one hundred most powerful people in the world of art by Art Review. Paola’s goal is to insistently promote design’s understanding, until its positive influence on the world is fully acknowledged and exploited. She is currently working on several shows on contemporary design; and on Design Bites, a book about foods from all over the world appreciated as examples of outstanding design.

“People think that design is styling.

Design is not style. It’s not about giving shape to the shell and not giving a damn about the guts.” Honorary Doctor

Alber ElbazArtistic Director, Lanvin

Alber Elbaz was born in Casablanca in 1961 and educated at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Israel.

In 1992 he moved to New York where he spent four years as the right-hand to the legendary American designer Geoffrey Beene. In 1996 he moved to Paris to become Head Designer at Guy Laroche.

In 1998, Alber was hand-picked by Pierre Berge and Yves Saint Laurent to take over as Artistic Director of the house, until 2000. His successes in marrying age-old couture traditions with a new glamorous modernity at Yves Saint Laurent made Alber the obvious choice to take Lanvin into the twenty-first century.

Alber was appointed Artistic Director of Lanvin in 2001, where his unequivocal talent has since been recognised throughout the world. As well as receiving the International Fashion Award by the CFDA, Alber was elected Chevalier of the Légion d’Honneur and voted one of Time magazine’s ‘100 Most Influential People in the World’.

Alber’s love of women and unique appreciation of the female form is central to his design process and sets him apart as a distinctive voice in the fashion world.

Consequently, a loyal following of women across the globe are continually seduced by Alber’s experimental, feminine and enduring creations.

An emotion.” Honorary Doctor Grayson Perry CBE Fine Artist and Ceramicist Winner of the 2003 Turner prize, Grayson Perry is one of Britain’s best-known contemporary artists. He works with traditional media – ceramics, cast iron, bronze, printmaking and tapestry – and is interested in how each historic category of object accrues intellectual and emotional baggage over time.

Perry is a great chronicler of contemporary life, drawing us in with beauty, wit, affecting sentiment and nostalgia, as well as fear and anger. His hard-hitting and exquisitely crafted works reference his own childhood and life as a transvestite while also engaging with wider social issues from class and politics to sex and religion.

Grayson Perry has had major solo exhibitions nationally and internationally including the critically acclaimed Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman at the British Museum.

His monumental suite of tapestries The Vanity of Small Differences, which were inspired by his BAFTA-winning Channel 4 series In the Best Possible Taste, are currently on a national and international tour led by the Arts Council Collection and British Council.

“I can’t resist having a joke.

Artists I like, such as Breughel, put jokes in their work. I think it’s part of reflecting human life.” Honorands Professors Emeritus

The response might be described as a pleasant tingling feeling, associated with the flexing of hair follicles resulting in goosebumps (technically called piloerection), accompanied by a cold sensation, and sometimes producing a shudder or shiver.
