Royal Academy Summer ExhibitionThe Royal Academy's annual Summer Exhibition celebrates its 250th anniversary in 2018, and, to mark the occasion, the exhibition will be coordinated by Grayson Perry. Anyone can submit to the exhibition which gives it a wonderful element of surprise. Over 12,000 pieces are sifted through from relative unknowns to famous artists and members of the RA. The fun part for visitors is choosing a favourite and, with the majority of works on sale at varying price ranges, you can even buy one if you really fall in love with it. First held in 1769, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition is the largest regular contemporary art exhibition in the world. It's an impressive show that gives an excellent cross-section of contemporary art every summer and each year a prominent sculpture greets visitors to the exhibition as they walk through the Royal Academy's great courtyard.
