250th royal academy summer exhibition

4 june 2018 : keith williams architects at the 250th royal academy summer exhibition

Two works by Keith Williams have been selected for the 250th Royal Academy Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy in Burlington House on London’s Piccadilly.

Keith is a regular exhibitor at the prestigious annual exhibition, and this year the works are both in three dimensional form and are on display in Gallery VI.

They comprise Keith’s abstract sculptural exploration Architectonic Sequence : Field of 9 along with an architectural model of his firm’s Clare County Library and Art Gallery, Ireland. Both pieces are exercises in 3D printing.

The works in Gallery VI, works by architects, were chosen and curated by architect Piers Gough RA.

This summer, Grayson Perry RA has coordinated the biggest, brightest and most colourful Summer Exhibition yet, in the RA’s 250th annual celebration of “art made now”. The hanging committee for the Summer Exhibition included Royal Academicians Allen Jones, Chris Orr, Christopher Le Brun, Conrad Shawcross, Cornelia Parker, David Mach, Emma Stibbon, Humphrey Ocean, Phyllida Barlow, Piers Gough and Tom Phillips.

The RA state…“Each summer, our galleries are jam-packed with contemporary art made by artists from all walks of life. A world-famous show unlike any other, the Summer Exhibition draws together works by internationally renowned artists, exciting new talent and first-time exhibitors……With over 1,200 works on display, you’ll see art you love, art you hate, art that leaves you thinking and art that simply puts a smile on your face.

The Summer Exhibition runs from 12 June – 19 August.
