TWO of the biggest names in British art will mastermind this year’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, which will run at the Academy’s galleries on London’s Piccadilly from June 8 to 16.

David Hockney and Allen Jones have been appointed as joint exhibition co-ordinators and they will oversee the selection and hanging process.

Another leading British artist, acclaimed sculptor Anish Kapoor, will help select and display the pieces in the gallery dedicated to sculpture and will co-ordinate the placing of work in the RA Annenberg Courtyard.
