The Summer Exhibition attracts a high volume of entrants annually with over 11,000 entries received this year. Royal Academician Tess Jaray is the co-ordinator for Summer Exhibition 2012.
The exhibition begins in the Wohl Central Hall, which this year pays homage to Matisse’s The Red Studio. The vibrant gallery provide a backdrop to a selection of paintings whose main concern is colour. Gallery III, the grandest space in Burlington House, is curated by Tess Jaray RA. Containing a large quantity of smaller paintings, the gallery demonstrates that work of a more modest scale can be as powerful as larger work. As a former teacher at the Slade School of Art, Jaray is mindful of providing a forum for established and younger artists to show their work to the public.
Chris Wilkinson RA and Eva Jiricna RA have curated the architecture gallery of the Summer Exhibition. Their curatorial direction seeks to blur the boundaries between architecture and the fine arts

Further highlights include a video room dedicated to the work of Jayne Parker and a gallery of Scottish and Irish artists arranged by Barbara Rae RA. Other artists exhibiting this year include Michael Craig-Martin RA, Michael Landy RA, Tracey Emin RA, Ken Howard RA, Anselm Kiefer Hon RA, Raqib Shaw, Calum Innes and Keith Coventry.

Following on from last year’s successful BBC TWO Summer Exhibition Culture Show Special, the Royal Academy of Arts is delighted to be working with the BBC once more. 'The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition: A Culture Show Special with Alastair Sooke will be broadcast on Friday, 15 June at 6pm on BBC2.

Group Show Collectie Piet en Ida Sanders. Piet and Ida Sanders. A Life with Art 
Stedelijk Museum Schiedam Hoogstraat, Netherlands  
June 30th - October 21st 2012

From 30 June to 21 October 2012, to mark the hundredth birthday of Piet Sanders and in memory of his wife Ida Sanders, the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam will present the exhibition entitled Piet en Ida Sanders. Een Leven met Kunst (Piet and Ida Sanders. A Life with Art). The exhibition contains a selection of more than a hundred works that were present in the Sanders’ household, as well as a selection of the artworks they donated to the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam.

It is a great honour for the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam to be able to display this exhibition. In this way, the Museum can show its gratitude for the donations that it has received over the past few decades, for the important role that Piet Sanders played in the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam from the early 1950s onward, and the inexhaustible commitment of the Sanders couple to the dissemination of modern and contemporary art, both inside and outside the walls of their dwelling, and in museums and public space. Besides being a private collector and art promoter, Piet Sanders was also a professor at the Faculty of Law of the Erasmus University Rotterdam, and played a significant role in post-war international relations.
