Art for all
As seasonal as sunshine and strawberries, if it’s summer in London, it must mean the SummerExhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts (from 13 Jun; p. 43). This is back for an astounding 249th year since its founding in 1769 – not only is it the world’s longest-running open-submission art exhibition, but it’s also the largest. Get ready to feast your eyes on an astounding array of 12,000 contemporary works filling the Royal Academy’s walls, with everything for sale. Its genres are varied, including paintings, sculptures and photography sitting side-by-side with printmaking, architecture and film, from emerging artists to some of the biggest names in contemporary art.
