Virtual tour: Summer Exhibition 2020

Published 30 October 2020

Explore the first ever winter Summer Exhibition like never before and discover a myriad of works by household names and emerging artists inside this virtual tour.

  • See inside the Summer Exhibition 2020

    252 years ago, a group of artists made it their mission to form an annual exhibition to support artists and architects, by showcasing art of the moment to the nation. The Summer Exhibition has run uninterrupted ever since: a backdrop to famous artistic rivalries of the past and now a fixture of the summer calendar for art seekers, year after year.

    Coordinated by artistic duo Jane and Louise Wilson RA, this autumn is set to be just as uplifting – you are sure to see art you love, art you hate, and art that puts a smile on your face. You might even find art to take home.

    This year’s exhibition includes new works by Tracey Emin, Rebecca Horn , Anselm Kiefer, Julian Schnabel, Gillian Wearing and Ai Weiwei.
