SUMMER EXHIBITION 2019

The Royal Academy, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J OBD

10th June - 12th August 

Coordinated this 251st year, by acclaimed British artist Jock McFadyen RA, the annual Summer Exhibition is the art show of all art shows, where amateur artists show alongside veterans and everyone has an opinion of what constitutes great contemporary art.  Even the great Winston Churchill showed something under a pseudonym back in the day!

Works from all over the world are submitted and it’s the oldest exhibition of its kind with around 16,000 entries this year alone, whittled down to about 1200 works to be displayed for all to critique…  meaning it takes eight days to hang!  How the RA luminaries make that final decision is a conundrum and there are always some stylish surprises. 

This year the celebrated German filmmaker Wim Wenders chips in with a series of panoramic photographs and the Academy’s courtyard statue of Joshua Reynolds will be joined by a show of large scale sculptural works from artist Thomas Houseago.  The famous Architecture gallery will focus on sustainability, the topic foremost on everyone’s radar right now.

Challenging, inspiring and thought-provoking, the show aims to excite and tempt, as artworks go on sale afterwards for a little or a lot if you fancy an original McFadyen or Tracey Emin!

The artist is the seller, with the RA commission going to fund financing future post grad students  at the RA schools which was always the original focus of creating the Exhibition.

From quirky amateurs, who have their moment of fame, to celebrated artists of international recognition,  everyone joins in with this great British event, including the surrounding Mayfair streets where art inspired windows, flags and banners fly to mark the occasion.

And there’s even more to come, in July the Courtyard will be transformed with music and lights recreating the atmosphere of Georgian London’s Pleasure Gardens, all part of the RA Lates programme.  Come, they say, dressed for best in vibrant florals or otherworldly creatures!!
