12 June - 19 August 2018
Main Galleries, The Sackler Wing of Galleries and The Ronald and Rita McAulay Gallery, Burlington House, W1J 0BD
Each summer the RA galleries are jam-packed with contemporary art made by internationally renowned artists and exciting new talent. This year, the 250th Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, Grayson Perry RA and his committee of fellow artists have handpicked over 1,300 artworks in an array of mediums.
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.
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. Le Brun is exhibiting a suite of four new woodcut prints, entitled Changing Light 2018, in the Sackler Galleries.
