Summer exhibition at the Royal Academy

The world’s largest open submission exhibition is back

The Summer Exhibition is our annual celebration of art and artists, run without interruption since 1769. Anyone can submit their work, regardless of background or experience.

Most of the art in the show 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.

The mix of art by household names, Royal Academicians and emerging talent is what makes the Summer Exhibition the UK’s best-loved art show.
