Patrons are invited to join us for a curator-led tour the Summer Exhibition 2019, before it opens to the public.

The Summer Exhibition provides emerging and established artists with a unique platform to showcase their work. Famously the world’s largest open submission show, there are certain things the Summer Exhibition delivers on every single year: a panorama of art in all mediums, a remarkable mixture of emerging artists and household names, and more to see and explore than any other exhibition you’re likely to visit this year.

As in previous years, most works are for sale, giving you the opportunity to own original artworks by leading artists of today and tomorrow. And, crucially, proceeds allow us to continue providing, free, world-class postgraduate tuition in the RA Schools.

Join curator Jock McFadyen RA and the Head of the Summer Exhibition, Edith Devaney, for an in-depth tour of the exhibition as he highlights key works in this year’s selection, ahead of the opening.
