RA Summer Exhibition

Interior, RA Summer ExhibitionAnother show which opens on Monday 8 June is the Royal Academy of Arts’ Summer Exhibition, now in its 241st year. This is the largest open-submission contemporary art exhibition in the world. Brenda Emmanus previewed the show for BBC London News earlier in the week and managed to find the most appalling tosh at which to poke the camera. Maybe it's her editor who's to blame. Whatever the cause, the BBC managed to make the show seem a waste of space. Surely not all of the roughly 1000 works selected out of 10,000 submissions are that bad. It will cost you £8.50 to find out. And you don't even get comfortable chairs to sit on, judging by this photo!
