Royal Academy Summer ExhibitionAnyone can submit to the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition which gives it a wonderful element of surprise. Over 12,000 pieces are sifted through from relative unknowns to famous artists and members of the RA. 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. First held in 1769, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition is the largest regular contemporary art exhibition in the world. It's an impressive show that gives an excellent cross-section of contemporary art every summer and each year, a prominent sculpture greets visitors to the exhibition as they walk through the Royal Academy's great courtyard.
