RA Summer Exhibition 2015
皇家美術學會夏季展 2015


 

The leading British artist Michael Craig-Martin RA will coordinate the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition 2015. The hanging committee for the Summer Exhibition includes Royal Academicians Norman Ackroyd, Olwyn Bowey, Gus Cummins, Jock McFadyen, David Remfry, Mick Rooney, Alison Wilding and Bill Woodrow.

As the world’s largest open submission exhibition, the Summer Exhibition provides a unique platform for emerging and established artists and architects to showcase their works to an international audience, comprising a range of media from painting to printmaking, photography, sculpture, architecture and film. This year the Royal Academy received 12,000 entries, from which a committee of Royal Academicians, will make a selection to hang on the walls of the Main Galleries in Burlington House. Over 1,200 artworks will go on display, the majority of which will be for sale offering visitors an opportunity to purchase original artwork by high profile and up-and-coming artists.

One of the founding principles of the Royal Academy of Arts was to ‘mount an annual exhibition open to all artists of distinguished merit’ to finance the training of young artists in the Royal Academy Schools. The Summer Exhibition has been held every year without interruption since 1769 and continues to play a significant part in raising funds to finance the current students of the RA Schools. The RA Schools is the longest established art school in the UK and offers the only free three-year postgraduate programme in Europe.

英國著名藝術家、皇家美術學會院士邁克爾·克雷格-馬丁(Michael Craig-Martin)將與皇家美術學會合作共同打造2015年夏季大展。今年的夏季展評選委員會包括了眾多的皇家美術學會院士,如諾曼·阿克羅伊德(Norman Ackroyd)、歐文·博伊(Olwyn Bowey)、格斯·康明斯(Gus Cummins)、喬克·麥克法迪安(Jock McFadyen)、大衛·蘭佛睿(David Remfry)、米克·魯尼(Mick Rooney)、艾莉森·威爾丁(Alison Wilding)以及比爾·伍德羅(Bill Woodrow)。

皇家美術學會夏季展是全世界最大的公開徵集作品的群體展覽,它為年輕和成熟藝術家與建築師提供了一個特有的平台,來向全世界展示他們的作品,參展作品形式多樣,從油畫、版畫、攝影、雕塑、建築以及電影都涵蓋其中。今年皇家美術學會收到了12000份參展申請,皇家美術學會夏季展評委會將從中選出1200件作品參加展覽,其中的大部份作品是對公眾開放認購的,展覽中觀眾可以訂購自己中意的作品,待展覽結束之後便可以收入懷中。
皇家美術學會的初創原則之一便是“承辦年度的展覽,展示所有藝術家的傑出創作”,以籌集資金來支持和培養在皇家美術學會學習和進修的年輕藝術家。從1769年至今,這一傳統從未間斷,並且一直扮演著為在校學生籌措資金的重要角色。皇家美術學會是英國歷史最為悠久的藝術學府,為學生提供免費的三年研究生學習課程,這在歐洲也是絕無僅有的。
