RA Summer Show

Meet model Evangeline Ling looking suitably pouty in a dazzling white-and-yellow dress. She's one of a gaggle of minor celebrities who attended a private viewing of the 245th Royal Academy Summer Exhibition this week. Will the show include anything quite as eye-catching? We already know the facade of Burlington House is draped in a curtain of shiny bottle tops by El Anatsui (CLICK). So there's bling outside. Inside there's a room dedicated to the awful tapestries of Grayson Perry. Groan! CLICK for a BBC London video with interviews by Brenda Emmanus and see if you can spot any genuine art amidst the tripe. The show opens on Monday 10 June (CLICK). Tickets cost £10 for adults, £9 for silver surfers.
