A-level Summer Exhibition Online 2017

Here, There and Everywhere

12 June — 20 August 2017

Selected from over 2,400 submissions, the A-level Summer Exhibition Online is a showcase of the UK’s young artistic talent.

This year, 1,200 aspiring artists attending sixth form colleges or schools submitted their work to the A-level Summer Exhibition Online 2017. Take a look at this exhibition of 49 outstanding works of art, selected by our expert panel: Royal Academician Wolfgang Tillmans, curator Per Rumberg, and RA Schools student Jessy Jetpacks.

Having work chosen to appear in the A-level Summer Exhibition Online is a great achievement for young artists in the UK. Many of these students will go on to develop their talents at art school and in their careers. Students from all over the UK enter their works and the exhibition showcases a rich variety of styles and media: from drawing and video to sculpture and prints, painting and photography.

Held to coincide with the world’s largest open-entry exhibition, the Summer Exhibition, this online equivalent for artists aged 16–18, signals an exciting future for art in this country. Be among the first to discover these artists now.

“It is easy to dismiss 16-18 year-olds as not knowing what they are thinking and feeling. But the privilege of being on the jury this year allowed me to witness the clarity of thought, vision, and intuition that a young mind has. I think Here, There and Everywhere deserves a great deal of attention and so do the artists selected. As always there is the quagmire of drawing the line, in or out. We, the jury, would like to send a great deal of encouragement to those who didn’t just make the cut, to not lose faith, and to carry on exploring your vision. Next time, yours might get selected.”

– Wolfgang Tillmans
