Royal Academy of Arts

Hosting exhibitions and events all year round. The RA was founded in 1768 by a group of 40 artists and architects who became the first Royal Academicians. The first president was Sir Joshua Reynolds, whose statue now stands outside Burlington House. Over the past 250 years, we've moved house several times, elected hundreds of new RAs and even survived the Blitz - all while continuing to champion art and architecture in all its forms. From ancient sculpture to modern-day masterpieces, the RAA is the original home of blockbuster exhibitions, staging the world's largest open-submission exhibition during summer. Our events programme opens up the worlds of our exhibitions and helps introduce new audiences to our art and artists.
