Tom Hunter is an invited artist in this years Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts
10 June — 12 August 2019
Following last year’s record-breaking 250th Summer Exhibition, our annual celebration of art and creativity continues in 2019.
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. Highlights will include an animal-themed ‘menagerie’ in the Central Hall, with works by artists including Polly Morgan, Charles Avery and Mat Collishaw. Artist sisters Jane and Louise Wilson RA will curate two galleries, one of which will showcase work exploring light and time. Further artists exhibiting include Jeremy Deller, Marcus Harvey, Tom Hunter and Tracey Emin RA, and Honorary Academicians Anselm Kiefer, James Turrell and Wim Wenders.
