The Royal Academy of Arts summer party

Celebrated names from the world of art, fashion and literature were out in force last night (2 June) for the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition Preview Party in central London, which gives guests the very first opportunity to buy works of art from the Summer Exhibition, prior to the official buyers day.

Featuring a wide range of works from both new and emerging artists, this year's Summer Exhibition purposely has no theme, and instead the exhibition will be hung in the style of a ‘salon hang’.

Click on the images below to see photos from the event, including Tali Lennox, Laura Bailey, Tracey Emin and more.
