Run without interruption since 1769, the Summer Exhibition is the world’s largest open submission art show and brings together art in all mediums – prints and paintings, film, photography, sculpture, architectural works and more – by leading artists, Royal Academicians and household names as well as new and emerging talent. Around 1,200 works will be on display, most of them for the first time. This year, acclaimed British painter Jock McFadyen RA will take the mantle from Grayson Perry to co-ordinate the 251st Summer Exhibition.
