Art for all

Where London - - Musuems & Galleries -

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.
