Summer Exhibition 2012 at Royal Academy of Arts

May 29, 2012 by Kay

Summer Exhibition 2012 Royal Academy of Arts,
Main Galleries 4th June–12 August 2012

Rachel Howard - London Painting (leaving town), 17" x 17",
Oil, household gloss and acrylic on canvas

The Summer Exhibition attracts a high volume of entrants annually with over 11,000 entries received this year.

Inside the Main Galleries, paying homage to Matisse’s The Red Studio, the Wohl Central Hall will show a vibrant display of colourful works. Gallery III, the grandest space in Burlington House, will be curated by Tess Jaray RA. Containing a large quantity of smaller work, this will demonstrate that work of a more modest scale can be as powerful as larger work. As a former teacher at the Slade School of Art, Jaray is mindful of providing a forum for established and younger artists to show their work to the public.

Chris Wilkinson RA and Eva Jiricna RA will curate the architecture gallery of the Summer Exhibition this year. Their curatorial direction will seek to blur the boundaries between architecture and fine arts.

Other highlights will include a video room dedicated to the work of Jayne Parker and a gallery of Scottish and Irish artists arranged by Barbara Rae RA. Other artists exhibiting this year include Christopher Le Brun PRA, Michael Landy RA, Tracey Emin RA, Ken Howard RA, Raqib Shaw, Calum Innes and Keith Coventry among others. Rachel Howard will be exhibiting her painting above and Lupus Lupus at the exhibition this year.
