About the event

Held without interruption since 1769, the Summer Exhibition displays works in a variety of mediums and genres by emerging and established contemporary artists.

Everything you’ll see at the Summer Exhibition represents what is happening in the art world right now. New and recent art created by everyone from emerging artists to the biggest names in contemporary art and architecture. Now in its 250th year, the Summer Exhibition continues in the tradition of showcasing a variety of work in all media, including painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, architecture and film. This must-see exhibition is a unique window onto all areas of the contemporary art world.

In its 250th year, the show will be the cultural highlight of the season, spilling out of the RA and onto the streets of London’s West End. An art extravaganza, there’ll be a monumental sculpture in our courtyard and artworks in an array of mediums throughout our galleries, all handpicked by a committee led by Grayson Perry RA. With over 1,200 works on display, you’ll see art you love, art you hate, art that leaves you thinking and art that simply puts a smile on your face.

Come along with a sketchbook on a quiet Monday morning, have a drink with your friends in the galleries on a Friday night, bring the family to our free weekend festival or join our biggest ever RA Late in full fancy dress. There are plenty of ways to take part in this joyous celebration of art.

As always, most of the art is for sale and purchases help raise money for the non-profit making areas of the Academy, including the Royal Academy Schools.
