Champagne Life @ Saatchi

The Saatchi Gallery’s headline show at the moment consists of 14 female artists. The show is called Champagne Life and the title is probably a nod to the gallery’s thirtieth birthday.

Chanel @ Saatchi

Coco Chanel’s spirit has been brought to and taken over the Saatchi Gallery. Her essence has found a home in every crevice of the building taking over the whole of the three-story establishment and has even spilled outside of the gallery, in the form of specially built garden.

African & Latin American Art @ Saatchi

Giant ants and sacks cover the walls of the latest exhibition at Saatchi Gallery. Pangea was the land mass that once united Africa and Latin America, whose contemporary art now shares a stage at the Chelsea gallery. As always, with Saatchi Gallery, the show is a mixed bag. There is a lot to see across […]
