EXHIBITION NOW CLOSED
Now in its 241st year, the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition 2009 continues the tradition of displaying a wide range of new work by both established and unknown artists in all media including painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture and architecture.
This year's co-ordinators, Royal Academicians Ann Christopher, Eileen Cooper and Will Alsop have selected works for the exhibition around the theme of 'Making Space'. Since the founding of the Royal Academy of Arts in 1768, the annual Summer Exhibition has become the world’s largest open-submission contemporary art exhibition.
The Royal Academy is delighted to once again be collaborating with the BBC to celebrate the Summer Exhibition.
