ACS artist Michael Craig-Martin has coordinated this year's wonderful - and colourful! - Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
For 247 years the Summer Exhibition has promised audiences a snapshot of the finest contemporary art in Britain, and in 2015 Michael Craig-Martin has captured one of the most vibrant, bold and colourful images of art today.
A leading artist and beloved teacher who has nurtured the talents of Sarah Lucas and Damien Hirst among others, Craig-Martin’s distinctive vision has ensured that a brilliant variety of new work by both established and emerging artists is represented in this prestigious open exhibition. Work by a multitude of ACS artists has been included in this year’s exhibition, including painting, prints and sculpture by Norman Ackroyd, Mick Rooney, Diana Armfield, Ken Howard, Paula Rego and Susan Wilson among many others.
With over 1,200 works arranged in the hallowed halls of the RA, currently resplendent in Michael Craig-Martin’s idiosyncratic neon pink and bright turquoise, Craig-Martin and the hanging committee have succeeded in organising one of the most celebrated Summer Exhibitions in recent years. Congratulations!
