Comments on: Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts http://blog.visitlondon.com/2011/06/summer-exhibition-at-the-royal-academy-of-arts/ Enjoy the very best of London Thu, 11 Dec 2014 18:18:36 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0.1 By: ContraryMary http://blog.visitlondon.com/2011/06/summer-exhibition-at-the-royal-academy-of-arts/#comment-54657 Fri, 17 Jun 2011 14:23:55 +0000 http://blog.visitlondon.com/?p=21552#comment-54657 Visited the summer exhibition on Wednesday and struggled to engage with it because I thought the quality was poor.

There were a few pieces which were the product of intelligent thought or showed great skill. The majority were not of the standard one would expect from an exhibition of this calibre.

This is not knocking modern art. Conceptual modern art is exciting as is skilled traditional art. Neither was particularly well represented in this show.

But it is always interesting to visit the exhibition. This year’s disappointing selection will make next year’s show look better. This exhibition is not an accurate reflection of the fantastic London arts scene.
