The RHA 185th Annual Exhibition opens to the public on 26 May and runs until 9 August.

Ireland’s largest and longest established open submission exhibition includes painting, sculpture, photography, print, drawing and architectural models by Academy Members, invited artists and artists selected through the open submission process.

This year, the RHA is delighted to exhibit work by internationally acclaimed artist, Tracey Emin. Showing her work in Dublin for the first time, Emin, who held the position of Eranda Professor of Drawing at the Royal Academy Schools from 2011 – 2013 has said:

I’m very fond of Dublin. I have always had really good times there. It’s a romantic place, where people kiss in the streets. I feel honored to be showing at RHA.”

With all gallery spaces dedicated to this exhibition, the RHA presents the visitor with a unique opportunity to view work by artists at every level of their career, from new talent to established artists, hanging side by side. 2014 saw a 28% increase in sales indicating that Ireland’s art investment market has clearly turned a corner and the RHA Annual exhibition is the perfect spotting ground for the aspiring and discerning collector
