We invite RA250 Friends and RA250 Supporters to join us for a private view and curator-led tour with RA Curator and Head of the Summer Exhibition, Edith Devaney.

Held without interruption since 1769, the Summer Exhibition displays works in a variety of mediums and genres by emerging and established contemporary artists.

Join us in the Academicians’ Room for an exclusive talk with curator and Head of the Summer Exhibition, Edith Devaney, as she discusses her experience; from artwork selection to the remarkable installation of the largest open-submission exhibition in the world.

The Summer Exhibition 2018
The Summer Exhibition provides established and emerging artists with a unique platform to showcase their work. Famously the world’s largest open submission show, expect 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.

This year, coordinator Grayson Perry RA brings “Art Made Now” to the forefront, including a “Room of Fun” for all to enjoy.

This event is open to RA250 Friends, RA250 Supporters and members of the Academicians’ Room only. Please call 020 7300 8090 to book.
