Celebrating the Royal Academy's 250th anniversary, this year's Summer Exhibition of 'art made now' promises to be the biggest, brightest and most colourful yet. Now open until the 19th August 2018, over 1,300 paintings, prints, sculptures and architectural models will be on display at the Royal Academy's newly expanded cultural campus.
Developed in collaboration with School 21 pupils, 'Re-imaging Stratford ' was conceived in a bid to show school children that the act of sketching ideas as architects is the start of a hybrid process using digital platforms, that culminates in the final constructed building.
Asked 'What will Stratford look like in 50 years?' the children then sat down to produce 10 minute drawings to communicate their ideas. With the help of our digital studio, we have converted the children's drawings into a colourful, digitally created three dimensional model which will be on display for the duration of the exhibition.
Each summer, the Royal Academy showcases a range of contemporary art made by internationally renowned artists and exciting new talent and we are thrilled to be among those selected for this year's exhibition.
