Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition

2018 is our thirteenth year as lead sponsor of the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition.

Now in its 250th year, it is the largest open submission exhibition in the world, attracting over 12,000 entries.

Founded in 1769 with the purpose to "mount an annual exhibition open to all artists" to finance the training of distinguished young artists, the Summer Exhibition continues to play a vital role in raising funds for students of the Royal Academy Schools. The exhibition runs for several weeks during the summer months at the Royal Academy in central London.

Take a look behind the scenes at the annual celebration Insight hosts to honour the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition: a wonderfully unique, challenging and uplifting showcase of contemporary art.
