Time for the annual trip to the Summer Exhibition at the other RA ;-)
Not just any annual open-submission exhibition featuring over 1,300 artworks – this one is also the RA’s 250th Summer Exhibition and so it is extra special.
I couldn’t agree more – co-curated by Grayson Perry RA this time the exhibition feels like a celebration of colour and art that truly reflects the current climate. Political artwork sits alongside fun and whimsical art and both look at home here.
I particularly enjoyed Room III with its bright yellow walls and sense of fun. You can feel Grayson Perry’s influence in the intelligent, joyful and poignant work here.
We filled our List of Works with annotations and feel inspired for the year to come. This year’s Summer Exhibition has outdone itself!
Until next year..
