Description

This year see the 247th year of the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition, the largest open submission art show in the world. With over 1200 pieces, this is a riotous celebration of all things colourful and contemporary, giving a stage to new and upcoming artists, as well as more well-known names. It's a great way to celebrate the diversity of the art world. With displays of sculpture, film, painting, architecture, photography and printmaking, the exhibition is the perfect opportunity to discover your new favourite artist.

The exhibit begins in the courtyard, with a towering formation of steel 'clouds' by artist Conrad Shawcross, before continuing up Jim Lambie's kaleidoscope staircase. This historical exhibition has a rich artistic heritage, with some of earliest contributors being Turner and Constable. This year, the exhibition is co-ordinated by Michael Craig-Martin, a leading artist and teacher of Damien Hirst and Sarah Lucas. Many of the pieces are on sale and the artwork sales help to fund the free tuition that the Royal Academy Schools have offered for the past 250 years. Craig-Martin's exciting creative vision, means this year will be filled with variety, colour and incredible submissions, handpicked from over 12,000 submissions - an absolute must-see for any art lover in London.
