Summer Exhibition 2018

11 Jun - 18 Aug 18

Royal Academy, London

Co-ordinated by Grayson Perry RA, the 250th Summer Exhibition featured works in an array of mediums from its range of acclaimed and emerging artists.

Perry and his committee of fellow artists handpicked over 1,300 artworks including Turk’s painted bronze Tulips (2017) as well as work by artists including: Anish Kapoor, David Shrigley, Martin Parr, David Hockney, Wolfgang Tillmans, Rose Wylie, Bruce Nauman, Mike Nelson, Joana Vasconcelos, Mona Hatoum, Ed Ruscha and Tracey Emin.

The exhibition extended across the recently-expanded cultural campus, with prints on display in The Sackler Wing of Galleries and a “room of humour” in the Ronald and Rita McAulay Gallery. The art extravaganza even spilled out into the streets of London’s West End, with an installation of over 200 flags designed by Royal Academicians.
