Summer Exhibition 2016, Royal Academy of Art, Main Galleries, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1, until 21st August 2016
This year’s exhibition is the 248th one and it has been co-ordinated by the well-known sculptor Richard Wilson RA. Noted artistic duos have been the inspiration for this years show and as you move around the galleries you will find works by more than twenty of them.
Among those invited are Heather & Ivan Morison, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Boyd & Evans, Tim Noble & Sue Webster, Langlands & Bell and Pierre et Gilles. Their works are among the twelve hundred works garnered from this year’s twelve thousand entries. Did I like it? Slightly more so on my second visit.
On arrival and departure do look at the screen on the Academy’s facade because you may have been caught on the camera that is part of Ron Arad’s wonderful 16 metre kinetic sculpture Spyre.
