Royal Academy of Arts - Summer Exhibition 2008
Exhibition: 9th Jun 2008 to 17th Aug 2008
Now in its 240th year, the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition 2008 continues the tradition of displaying a wide range of new work by both established and unknown artists in all media including painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture and architecture. This year's coordinators, Royal Academicians Gordon Benson, Tony Cragg and Humphrey Ocean, will select works for the exhibition around the theme of 'Man Made'. Since the foundation of the Royal Academy of Arts in 1768, the annual Summer Exhibition has become the world's largest open submission contemporary art exhibition.

The Summer Exhibition attracts a high volume of entrants each year with around 13,000 works submitted in 2007. The majority of selected works will be on sale, offering visitors an unrivalled opportunity to purchase original artwork by high profile and up-and-coming artists. David Hockney, Lucian Freud, Julian Opie and Gavin Turk were amongst those who exhibited in last year's show.

Highlights of this year's exhibition will include a gallery curated by Tracey Emin RA; Stephen Chambers RA will be overseeing the ever popular Print Room; and a gallery with a memorial display will be devoted to the late RB Kitaj RA. Marco Livingstone will assist the Royal Academy in the curation of this gallery.
