Summer Exhibition 2018
In our 250th year, Grayson Perry RA takes the helm to coordinate the world’s longest running and largest open-submission show: the Summer Exhibition.
The Summer Exhibition provides emerging and established artists a unique platform to showcase their work. Famous as 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.
