Grayson Perry coordinates the biggest, brightest & most colourful Summer Exhibition yet, in the RA's 250th annual celebration of “art made now”, with a whopping 1,300 artworks in an array of mediums.

Running from: Tue 12 Jun - Sun 19 Aug.

Expect a monumental sculpture by Anish Kapoor RA in the RA's courtyard, and within the galleries you’ll find vast new works by David Hockney RA and Joana Vasconcelos. Artists Mona Hatoum and Tal R are shown alongside Royal Academicians including Wolfgang Tillmans, Mike Nelson, Tracey Emin and Rose Wylie, and Honorary Academicians Bruce Nauman and Ed Ruscha.

The exhibition extends across the newly-expanded cultural campus, with prints on display in The Sackler Wing of Galleries and a “room of humour” in the new Ronald and Rita McAulay Gallery featuring David Shrigley and Martin Parr. The art extravaganza even spills out into the streets of London’s West End, with an installation of over 200 flags designed by Royal Academicians.Come along with a sketchbook on a quiet Monday morning, have a drink with your friends in the galleries on a Friday night, bring the family to the free weekend festival or join their biggest ever RA Late in full fancy dress. As always, most of the art is for sale and purchases help raise money for the Academy’s non-profit-making activities, including educating the next generation of artists in the Royal Academy Schools.
