About the exhibition

Summer Exhibition 2015
8th June – 16th August 2015
Royal Academy of Arts


For 247 years, the Summer Exhibition has offered a snapshot of contemporary art – and this year promises a riot of colour, variety and discovery with over 1,200 works spilling out from our galleries.

The Summer Exhibition is the world’s oldest open-submission exhibition: its earliest exhibitors included the likes of Reynolds, Constable and Turner. With many works in the exhibition on sale, the show also gives you a chance to own some original art while supporting the historic Royal Academy schools; artwork sales help us to continue the free tuition that we have offered for nearly 250 years.

Get ready to discover your new favourite artist at Summer Exhibition 2015. With everything from painting, printmaking and sculpture through to installation, photography and film, this is a show unlike any other. We hope you’ll join us at the RA for a vibrant summer of colour.

This exhibition is sponsored by Insight Investment.
