A lecture on the Royal Academy of Arts on its 250th anniversary by Pamela Campbell-Johnston

This will explore a selection of the Academy’s ground breaking temporary loan exhibitions and reflect on its impact on the art scene, both at home and abroad.  There will be a behind the scenes look at the Summer Exhibition, held without interruption since 1769.  The influence of certain world renowned Royal Academicians from Joshua Reynolds to David Hockney will be considered.
