Celebrate the world's largest and longest-running open-submission exhibition in its 250th year.

To mark the anniversary, this year's exhibition will be coordinated by Grayson Perry RA.

The world’s largest open-submission contemporary art show provides a unique platform for emerging and established artists to showcase their works to an international audience. The exhibition comprises a range of media from painting, printmaking and photography to sculpture, architecture and film.

As always, most of the work is for sale, giving visitors the opportunity to buy original pieces at the forefront of the contemporary art scene.
