Held without interruption since 1769, the Summer Exhibition displays works in variety of mediums and genres by emerging and established contemporary artists. This is one event that I rarely miss and I try to make a whole day outing every year.
A few iPhone snaps from when I visited last week.
"The Dappled Light of the Sun" by Conrad Shawcross RA
Large-scale, geometric, cloud-like forms made of thousands of tetrahedrons in weathering steel. Beautiful!
WATCH the video of the Making Process
"Zobop" by Jim Lambie - Coloured Vinyl Tape. The colourful stripes have a sort of Paul Smith vibe!
The brightly painted magenta walls provided a beautiful backdrop for the art.
