We invite Friends of the RA to join us for an exclusive preview of the ‘Summer Exhibition 2017’ before it is open to the public.

Now in its 249th year, the Summer Exhibition 2017 provides a unique platform for emerging and established artists to showcase works across painting and printmaking, photography, sculpture, architecture and film.

The RA’s annual Summer Exhibition is the world’s largest open submission contemporary art show. Everything you’ll see at the Summer Exhibition represents what is happening in the art world right now.

As a Friend of the RA you are invited to preview the Summer Exhibition with a guest for free. Make sure you are among the first to see this undoubtedly popular exhibition.
