We run through all the best art exhibitions coming to town this summer - from the new chronological rehang at Tate Britain to the Royal Academy's annual Summer Exhibition and one-off trip to Mexico.

 
 

Tate Britain

Chronological rehang, Patrick Caulfield, Gary Hume and Lowry

Millbank, Westminster, London, SW1P 4RG

Tube: Pimlico Station

 
 

On 13th May 2013, Tate Britain's collection displays reopen after a large refurbishment and chronological rehang. A sequence of 20 rooms will present the story of British art from the last 500 years in a continuous display - a walk through time - which includes iconic works by the likes of Bacon, Constable, Hirst, Hockney and Hogarth, and devotes special areas to William Blake, Henry Moore and JMW Turner. From 5th June, the gallery also pairs the celebrated British painter Patrick Caulfield and the contemporary artist Gary Hume before it becomes the first major London museum to mount an exhibition of LS Lowry's landscapes since the popular Lancashire artist's death in 1976. Lowry and the Painting of Modern Life (25th Jun - 20th Oct) brings 80 works to London and promises to be a highlight of the Tate's 2013 season. Also, running until 2nd June, Looking at the View examines the changing way more than 50 British artists, including Tracey Emin and JMW Turner, have tackled landscape.

Tate Modern

Choucair, El-Salahi, Gallagher and Gaba

Bankside Power Station, 25 Sumner Street, Bankside, London, SE1 9TG

Tube: Blackfriars Station

 
 

This summer, Tate Modern presents a series of intriguing premieres, including the UK debuts of pioneering Lebanese abstract artist Saloua Raouda Choucair and Sudanese artist Ibrahim El-Salahi, and a substantial solo show for US-born contemporary artist Ellen Gallagher. The Choucair retrospective (17th Apr to 20th Oct) features more than 120 works, many of which have never been seen before, bringing together paintings, sculptures and other objects made by the 97-year-old artist over six decades, reflecting her interests in science, mathematics and Islamic art and poetry. Ibrahim El-Salahi: A Visionary Modernist (3rd Jul - 22nd Sep) brings together 100 gloriously colourful works from across more than five decades of the career of one of the most significant figures in African and Arab Modernism. Ellen Gallagher: AxME (1st May - 1st Sep) is the UK's first major solo exhibition of the work of one of the most acclaimed and versatile contemporary artists to have emerged from North America since the mid-1990s. A final summer exhibition features an immersive twelve-room installation by Benin artist Meschac Gaba, constructed over five years and recently purchased by the Tate. Entitled Museum of Contemporary African Art, the free installation invites visitors to see and interact with a vast array of objects and environments.

Vermeer and Music: The Art of Love and Leisure

Trafalgar Square, Westminster, London, WC2N 5DN

Tube: Charing Cross Station, Leicester Square Station, Embankment Underground Station, Piccadilly Circus Station, Covent Garden Station

 
 

You'll certainly need to book ahead when the National Gallery brings works by the incomparable Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer and his contemporaries to London this summer, juxtaposing them with musical instruments and songbooks of the period. In Vermeer and Music: The Art of Love and Leisure (26th Jun - 8th Sep), two musical Vermeer paintings owned by the National Gallery - 'Young Woman Standing at a Virginal' and 'Young Woman Seated at a Virginal' - are brought together with Vermeer's 'Guitar Player' for the first time in a free exhibition displayed in the gallery's Sainsbury Wing. Visitors are given an insight into music as a pastime of the elite in the northern Netherlands during the 17th century; used for symbolic purposes, music was often used as a metaphor to indicate harmony, transience or to show the sitter's position in society.

Once again, the highlight of the National Portrait Gallery's summer season is the BP Portrait Award (20th Jun - 15th Sep), the world's most prestigious portrait painting competition which returns for its 34th year. With a new first prize of 30,000 the Award is aimed at encouraging artists to focus upon and develop portraiture in their work while the free exhibition of selected entrants will showcase outstanding and innovative new work in a variety of styles and approaches. Two artists have been short-listed for the 2013 Award - both for powerful paintings of their sons and daughters. John Devane ('The Uncertain Time') and Susanne du Toit ('Pieter') will learn who has scooped the top prize on Tuesday 18th June, two days before the exhibition opens at the National Portrait Gallery. Also on at the National Portrait Gallery over the summer, in the Porter Gallery, is Laura Knight Portraits (11th Jul - 13th Oct), an exhibition of 30 portraits from one of the most popular and pioneering British artists of the twentieth century. Capturing contemporary life and culture, Knight's highly distinctive and vivid work reflect her success in gaining greater professional recognition for women in the arts, and are remarkable for their diverse range of subjects and settings.

Summer Exhibition & Mexico: A Revolution in Art

Burlington House, Mayfair, London, W1J 0BD

Tube: Green Park Station, Piccadilly Circus Station

 
 

The Royal Academy's annual Summer Exhibition (10th Jun - 18th Aug) is one of the fixtures of any summer in London and has been running since 1769. Over 11,000 pieces are sifted through from relative unknowns to famous artists and members of the RA - giving the whole show a wonderful element of surprise. The fun part for visitors is choosing a favourite and, with the majority of works on sale at varying price ranges, you can even buy one if you really fall in love with it. Soon after its annual summer exhibition kicks off, the Royal Academy travels to Mexico for work by Diego Rivera, Tina Modotti and Edward Weston. Held in the Sackler Wing of the RA, Mexico: A Revolution in Art, 1910-1940 (6th Jul - 29th Sep) places works by national artists, such as the 'three greats' of Mexian art - Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros - alongside those of international artists affected by their experiences in Mexico during a time of profound political change.

Collecting Gauguin: Samuel Courtauld in the '20s

Somerset House, Strand, Covent Garden, London, WC2R 1LA

Tube: Temple Station

 
 

The Courtauld Gallery's summer showcase for 2013 delves into the works of Post-Impressionist master Paul Gauguin, widely celebrated as one of the most important artists of the 19th century. This exhibition was assembled by the pioneering collector Samuel Courtauld (1876-1947) and includes major paintings and works on paper as well as one of only two marble sculptures ever created by the artist. Two important works by Gauguin (1848-1903) have been loaned to supplement the Courtauld's private collection: 'Martinique Landscape' (Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh) and 'Bathers at Tahiti' (Barber Institute of Fine Arts, University of Birmingham). Collecting Gauguin (20th Jun - 8th Sep) offers an opportunity to consider the contribution of Samuel Courtauld in developing the artist's reputation in this country - a reputation that only started to flourish following Gauguin's death.

Keep Your Timber Limber & Points of Departure

 

Keep Your Timber Limber: Works on Paper (19th Jun - 8th Sep) explores how artists since the 1940s have used drawing to address ideas critical and current to their time, ranging from the politics of gender and sexuality to feminist issues, war, censorship and race. Stretching from fashion to erotica, the works can all be viewed as being in some way transgressive, employing traditional and commercial drawing techniques to challenge specific social, political or stylistic conventions. The free exhibition brings together the work of eight artists: Judith Bernstein, Tom of Finland, George Grosz, Margaret Harrison, Mike Kuchar, Cary Kwok, Antonio Lopez and Marlene McCarty. Also running this summer at the ICA as part of the 2013 Shubbak Festival in London, Points of Departure (26th Jun - 21st Jul) presents new commissions by Palestinian artists Jumana Emil Abboud, Bashar Alhroub, Bisan Abu Eisheh, and UK artists Jeremy Hutchison and Olivia Plender - all of whom undertook eight-week residencies in London and Ramallah respectively.

New Order: British Art Today, A Crisis of Brilliance & Annual Graduate Shows

 

Featuring 17 young artists based in the UK, New Order: British Art Today continues the Saatchi Gallery's 25-year-long support of emerging artists and the King's Road gallery's drive to make contemporary art as widely available as possible to both a British and international audience. The free exhibition offers an arresting insight into the nature of Britain today. It includes sculptural forms that owe a debt to American minimalism, paintings that mine British caricature from the 18th century, the iconography of earthly power, every day elements from ordinary life, industrial materials as well as traditional oil paint and gouache. British artists also feature in A Crisis of Brilliance (12th Jun - 22nd Sep), the Dulwich Picture Gallery's survey of such contemporaries as CRW Nevinson, Stanley Spencer, Mark Gertler and Dora Carrington, from their time at the Slade School of Art to their responses to the First World War. Finally, the Royal College of Art presents its annual Graduate Shows at both Kensington and Battersea (20th-30th Jun).
