Discover works by world-renowned and emerging artists at the Royal Academy of Arts' Summer Exhibition, one of the most significant dates in the art calendar.

Showcasing exciting, fresh work from a range of artists, this annual exhibition has an illustrious history, having helped many famous artists on their first steps towards success since its inception in 1769. Any artist is eligible to enter, no matter whether they are established or completely new to the art world.

This year, the Summer Exhibition is coordinated by the leading British sculptor and Royal Academician Richard Wilson, who invited a diverse group of more than 15 artistic duos to exhibit at the Royal Academy’s Main Galleries. Discover new artistic talent, and see works by Jake and Dinos Chapman, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov and Pierre et Gilles. Highlights of the display also include a giant installation by Turkish artist Kutluğ Ataman made of 10,000 LCD panels, and a suspended kite sculpture by Heather and Ivan Morison.
