The Royal Academy was founded in 1768, and in 2018 we’re marking our 250th birthday with a transformative redevelopment that will open up the RA with an expanded exhibition programme and new, free displays of art and architecture across the campus for visitors year-round. Designed by the internationally acclaimed architect David Chipperfield RA and supported by the National Lottery, a new cultural campus will unite our two buildings, Burlington House on Piccadilly and Burlington Gardens.
We’ll reveal the elements that make the RA unique, sharing the historic treasures in our Collectionand the work of our Academicians, as well as providing more space for the RA Schools and our learning programme. We’ll continue our world-class exhibition programme, inaugurating our new galleries with Tacita Dean: LANDSCAPE and celebrating the history of the Summer Exhibitionthrough the Great Spectacle.
