Things to do this month


Summer Exhibition

Royal Academy, 13th June to 21st August

Initiated in 1769, the annual summer exhibition “open to all artists of distinguished merit,” was a founding principle of Joshua Reynolds’s Royal Academy. Today, this show, selected from open submission and arranged in 10 rooms by the “Hanging Committee,” is still an exhausting but stimulating passage into summer. This year’s coordinator is the sculptor Richard Wilson. Spotlighting a distinctive feature of contemporary art, he has invited 15 artistic duos—from husbands and wives Ilya and Emilia Kabakov and Tim Noble and Sue Webster (and Austro-German couple EVA & ADELE) to brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman and sisters Jane and Louise Wilson—to exhibit work throughout the galleries. The lone genius Kutlug Ataman, the Turkish filmmaker, will recreate his multi-image video installation The Portrait Of Sakip Sabanci (2014)—10,000 LCD panels, each with an image of one person who crossed paths with Sabanci, the late businessman and philanthropist.

Winifred Knights

Dulwich Picture Gallery, 8th June to 18th September

In 1920 Winifred Knights (1899-1947) won the scholarship awarded by the British School at Rome for her remarkable painting The Deluge. At the Slade, she had evolved a meticulous style inspired by the Italian primitives: outwardly formal and frieze-like but full of emotion and drama. As part of Dulwich Picture Gallery’s Modern British series devoted to “critically neglected” artists, Sacha Llewellyn has put together a revelatory show of five major works with many drawings and studies.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s June issue: Bronwen Maddox lays out the case for Britain to stay in Europe—the position taken by the magazine. Mikhail Gorbachev explains his hopes for Russia, suggesting that the claim democracy is bad for Russia is “balderdash.” Rachel Sylvester looks at the Conservative Party and explores what might happen to the Tories after the EU referendum. Also in this issue: Nicholas Shaxson and Alex Cobham unpick the world of hidden money and what Britain can do about tax havens. Neil Kinnock argues that Labour isn’t making progress under Jeremy Corbyn and Jason Burke examines Islamic State and the networks that underpin their attacks. Plus Stephen Bayley asks was BritArt any good?
