The RA covers the contemporary and the historic: from Ai Wei Wei to Monet & Matisse. A highlight is the annual Summer Exhibition – the world’s largest open submission show – featuring contemporary works by academicians, selected applicants and invited international guests. Each year during the show, the RA courtyard is handed over to a different artist. A couple years ago my dad's Spyre was installed there: an 18 meter moving steel spire with a spy camera on the end that streamed live footage.
