RA Schools Opens Studios & Summer Exhibition

RA Schools Show 2017

22 June — 2 June

Beneath the Royal Academy, London’s galleries, 17 artists transform their studio space to present new work as they complete three years of postgraduate study at the Royal Academy Schools.

The RA Schools Show presents work developed over three intense years of dialogue and exploration. You can expect to see works spanning a broad range of media and representing the diverse perspective of graduating artists.

The Royal Academy Schools offers the only free three year postgraduate contemporary art programme in Britain. Graduates of the RA Schools include Turner Prize nominee Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Catherine Story and Eddie Peake.

 

Summer Exhibition 2017

13 June — 20 August 2017

The Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition 2017 will be coordinated by the Keeper of the RA Schools, Eileen Cooper RA. The hanging committee for the Summer Exhibition includes Royal Academicians Ann Christopher, Gus Cummins, Bill Jacklin, Farshid Moussavi, Fiona Rae, Rebecca Salter and Yinka Shonibare

The first female Keeper of the RA Schools, Eileen Cooper is a painter and printmaker known for her instantly recognisable style, sometimes described as “magical realism”. Her remarkable body of work explores such subjects as sexuality, birth, family, fecundity and creativity. In 2016, she was made an Officer of the British Empire (OBE) for services to arts and art education and was invited to the Women of the Year annual lunch.

The Architecture Gallery will be curated by Farshid Moussavi RA.

Everything you’ll see at the Summer Exhibition represents what is happening in the art world right now. New and recent art created by everyone from emerging artists to the biggest names in contemporary art and architecture.

The Royal Academy’s annual Summer Exhibition is the world’s largest open-submission contemporary art show. Now in its 249th year, the Summer Exhibition provides a unique platform for emerging and established artists to showcase works across painting and printmaking, photography, sculpture, architecture and film.

The Summer Exhibition attracts a high volume of entrants annually, with 12,000 entries received in the 2016 show.
