If you're coming to the Big Smoke this month, here is our pick of the exhibitions that are currently on display. If a trip to London is not on the cards, don't panic, we have the catalogues for you
1) The Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy - until 19 August
The Summer Exhibition at the RA is the world's oldest open submission show. This year the Summer Exhibition has some 3000 works by established artists like Tracey Emin and Grayson Perry and complete unknowns. It's immense fun and what's more, some of the time, the first gallery hosts a bar, so if you have a friend or partner who is not a fan of art, they'll have a good time too.
2) Rodin and the Art of Ancient Greece at the British Museum - until 29 July
This show looks at the profound influence that the British Museum had on Rodin. The show pairs many of Rodin's masterpieces including The Kiss, the Thinker and the Burghers of Calais with highlights from the Elgin Marbles. The show is beautifully lit and staged.
3. Picasso 1932 at the Tate Modern - until 9 September
