The Summer Exhibition

The Summer Exhibition of the Royal Academy is like an institution within the art world, and has been going since 1769. Put together this year by Richard Wilson, the exhibition displays over 1,100 works.

An array of innovative and exciting ideas were displayed through the beautifully executed outcomes, each created in mediums complementary to the styles of the artists work.

A piece that really stood out for me was titled ‘Migration’ and was a scene of galloping horses, each intricately laced in wires, which formed a structure depicting a forest landscape. The depth, detail and beauty of this piece was hugely captivating.

The Summer Exhibition is running up until the 21st of August and is worth a visit for a chance to catch a snapshot of the next generation of contemporary art.
