This summer, Mayfair Art Weekend taking place between 30 June – 2 July 2017, will bring the cultural landscape of Mayfair to life with a weekend of free and engaging events, exhibitions and talks, showcasing the diverse creative offering of one of the world’s most historic art districts. Building on the success of Brown’s London Art Weekend, the relaunched Mayfair Art Weekend 2017 in partnership with the Royal Academy of Arts, will see over 60 participating galleries and auction houses in Mayfair and St James’s open their doors to the public.
The Royal Academy will serve as a central hub providing visitors with more information about the wide range of open galleries and activities on offer. Throughout the weekend, an extensive free arts festival will take place in the RA Courtyard and across Burlington House, featuring a number of temporary artworks, creative workshops, music, dance, street-food and performances. The festival will coincide with the RA Schools Show, the annual exhibition of works by emerging artists graduating from the RA Schools, and the 249th Summer Exhibition, the world’s largest open submission exhibition.
