Royal Academy Summer Exhibition - ★★★★★ - Until August 19, 2018


Always a highlight of the cultural year, the 250th Summer Exhibition is far from staid. It has a sense of fun and a sense of humour that is often absent from more ponderous shows. The hand of this year's curator, Grayson Perry RA, is seen everywhere, and even for those who don't usually do galleries and exhibitions this is a must-see. There is a lot of serious social commentary and a lot of excellent work, but the spirit of the show is what makes it unique. This year, the exhibition spills into the streets of the West End with the installation of over 200 flags designed by the Royal Academicians. There is also a free Humour Room where you can get a taste of the exhibition...but do buy a ticket and see it all. And as usual, most works are for sale and some are very affordable!
