Inside the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition

This week’s Art Review comes from the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition

The world’s oldest open submission event has returned, despite the challenges of the pandemic, to continue its 252 year history at the Royal Academy of Arts. The event has happened every year since 1769 with the 2021 edition coordinated by Yinka Shonibare.

James has been speaking to the Chief Executive of the Royal Academy, and also has details of a new show at the Hayward Gallery called Mixing It Up.
