Alvaro Barrington Royal Academy of Arts: Summer Exhibition 2021

22 September 2021—2 January 2022
Royal Academy of Arts

The world’s most joyful art exhibition is back. From icons to the up-and-coming, find the art you love from over 1,000 works selected by coordinator Yinka Shonibare and a panel of artists, under the theme of ‘Reclaiming Magic’.

Held every year without fail, the Summer Exhibition is a celebration of contemporary art and architecture. Anyone can enter their work – leading artists, household names, new and emerging talent – and it provides a platform for the artistic community to showcase what they’re doing.

Across our Main Galleries, you can peruse prints, paintings, photography and film, as well as sculpture, architectural works and more. You can even take one home as most of the work is for sale; proceeds support both the exhibiting artist and the RA’s charitable activities.
