Last chance to catch From Selfie to Self-Expression

Saatchi’s Selfie exhibition created quite a buzz at the Square earlier this year, so we’re delighted that it’s back for another round, on now until 6 September. Perfect if you didn’t have a chance to catch it before, learn all about the art of the selfie and why it continues to be such a fascinating cultural phenomenon.

Selfies have been a huge part of pop culture for the last few years, but have you ever taken a closer look at this phenomenon? Saatchi has traced the history of this art form right through to its impact today for an in-depth exhibition that won’t disappoint. Learn about how self-portraits first began with a whistle stop tour of some of the greats, from Frida Kahlo to Rembrandt and Michaelangelo. Then enjoy some of today’s most famous selfies and explore why these images continue to fascinate society.
