With over 1,200 pieces to discover, it is the largest open submission exhibition in the world! 

History of the Royal Academy of Arts
With a history stretching back almost 250 years, this event has become a tradition with the Royal Academy of Arts. Its founding members decided to hold an ‘Annual Exhibition of Paintings, Sculptures and Designs open to all Artists’ in the hope of helping to train young artists in the Royal Academy Schools and has since remained important to the RA spanning centuries of the event.

Summer Exhibition
When perusing the exhibition and taking in the many wonders of art, you do have the opportunity to purchase many of the works on offer. Alternatively, you can look and buy online using the Summer Exhibition Explorer.

Showcasing Artists' Work
You’ll get to immerse yourself in a rich palette of artists including Gilbert and George RA (famous for their performance art and photo-based works), installation artist Isaac Julien and Matilda Perrine. This extra special event is an inventive, imaginative and innovative celebration of art in all its many fascinating forms.
