RA Summer Exhibition

The Royal Academy of Arts 244th Summer Exhibition opens on 4 June (CLICK). This year's organiser Tess Jaray has had the walls of the Wohl Central Hall painted a lurid shade of lipstick, presumably because she wanted to distract visitors from the ghastly daubs hung there. (See above.) Or maybe it's just a girlie thing to tart up the old place. The Telegraph had a sneak preview (CLICK for photos). That coathanger sculptor is back again: David Mach's Silver Streak was the hit of the 2010 Summer Exhibition (CLICK). This year it's a cheetah called Spike. Nicely done, but it looks like a health and safety issue to me. One trip and your eyes are impaled. Admission is £11.50 for adults, £9.50 for silver surfers.
