The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition began in 1769. It is the world’s largest open submission exhibition. The exhibits are selected and hung by Royal Academicians, who also exhibit their works, creating an eclectic mix by established artists alongside emerging talent and first-time exhibitors. This year, for the first time since its creation, it was cancelled and in its place they have mounted a Winter Exhibition which is open to the public.
