Get a flavour of the Summer Exhibition with this 90-second slice of the 2020 exhibition.
Held without interruption since 1769, the Summer Exhibition displays works in a variety of mediums and genres.
The works in the Summer Exhibition are selected and hung by Royal Academicians – who also exhibit works in the exhibition, creating an eclectic mix of work by established artists alongside emerging talent and first-time exhibitors.
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.
