Description

This year sees the 248th year of the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition, the largest open submission art show in the world. A riotous celebration of all things colourful and contemporary, the exhibition gives a stage to new and upcoming artists, as well as more well-known names. With displays of sculpture, film, painting, architecture, photography and printmaking, the exhibition is the perfect opportunity to discover your new favourite artist.

This historical exhibition has a rich artistic heritage, with some of earliest contributors being Turner and Constable. The exhibit begins in the courtyard, with a site-specific installation by sculptor and architect Ron Arad RA. ‘Spyre’ is a 16 metre high oval cone, with each segment moving at different speeds that ensure the shapes the installation takes will never be repeated.

This year, the exhibition is co-ordinated by Richard Wilson RA, who is exploring the theme of artistic duos. Wilson has invited an exciting and diverse mix of more than 15 artistic duos from around the world, including Heather & Ivan Morison, Pierre et Giles, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Langlands & Bell, Jane & Louise Wilson, Tim Noble and Sue Webster, Ilya & Emilia Kabakov, Boyd & Evans and EVA & ADELE among others. Turkish filmmaker Kutluğ Ataman will also display a major work – it’s set to be an astounding display.
