With graduates like J.M.W. Turner, David Hockney, John Constable and many, many others, The Royal Academy is simultaneously one of England’s most competitive art schools and also one of its most inventive exhibition spaces. The students and remarkable-in-their-own-right faculty make the Academy more of a community rather than just a space to experience great art. Don’t miss their annual Summer Exhibition: A tradition since 1769(!), it’s an enormous open-entry show with submissions from around the world that’s meant to offer insight into future art-world trends.
